What impressed you negatively?

"My interviewers were horrible. The faculty member did atleast 80% of the talking. Instead of bad mouthing the University of Washington (where I will be attending), he could have found out more about me. The 3rd year medical student was only interested in the free lunch that she was about to receive, as that interview only lasted a maximum of 5 minutes with a couple of very superficial questions. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pathetic--If a person is going to spend time and money to interview, perhaps the interview should serve a purpose. I did not feel (based on my two interviews) that Creighton could really differentiate any of us applicants by asking questions about subjects that could be easily accessed on our AMCAS applications. Other schools can examine if an applicant can communicate and is personable as well as probe an applicant as to the depth and meaningfulness of AMCAS experiences. However, Creighton's closed file interviews only serve the former purpose. I felt like I wasted time and money, and if I could do it over again, I would not, as I was already accepted to multiple schools with higher rankings at the time of my interview. Additionally, the interview day is way too long for how much really gets accomplished. " Report Response
