What was the most difficult question?

"Talk about three things that are not specifically mentioned in your application that you want us to know. I found the question difficult because I didn't know if they wanted me to talk about my other activities or to describe myself." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read over the school's website and handbook. I looked at this website and my application. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"We had lunch with the first years and they told us all about their experiences. They really loved the school and seemed very down to earth. I was also impressed that the school only interviews a very small fraction of the applicants (I interviewed with three other students and there will only be one more interview session this week). The admissions office meets once a month (September 19) to review applications, so I will be able to know my status within one week. I really enjoyed my experience and would love to attend this school next fall. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The first year students were taking their exams, so I was not able to sit in on a 1st year class. I did sit in on a second year cardiology class instead. The faculty member was extremely awesome and interesting because he talked about his personal experiences in the field instead of just lecturing the material. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I kept finding contradictory info about the number of out-of-state students the school accepted (ranging from 1%-15%). I found out that the school accepts closer to 15%, and that the admissions office helps those out-of-state students change their residency before school starts (hence the 1% that I found in the US News Graduate Guide). Some members of the faculty from the UMDNJ allopathic school teach courses for the osteopathic school. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really enjoyed the overall experience. It was my first interview, so I was obviously nervous and a little flustered in the beginning. I loved the supportive atmosphere. Good luck everyone! " Report Response
