What impressed you negatively?

"Parking. I had to pay 11 bucks for six hours of parking! Try to get a ride if you can. Otherwise, I have no complaints about this outstanding institution!! (besides that i'll have to take biochem this summer if i get in :( )" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was a little stressed because my last interviews had gone well, but I was waitlisted at both. I wanted to make a good impression because it's my state school, and so many things about it are appealing: amazing facilities and opportunities, cheap tuition (not compared to other instate rates, rather to private schools), nice students, and close to my family! As someone mentioned before, they do take half the people they interview - so relax! If I had to do it again, I would be a little more solid with stuff on my resume. Oh, and make sure you are pretty comfortable talking about current health issues." Report Response
