What impressed you positively?

"the atmosphere of tucson is cool around u of a. if i would have gone there as an undergrad, that might have been different. the admissions staff was very friendly, and you definatley get the feeling that access to the administration is one of the school's comparative assets. the students we met with were funny, honest, and down to earth. i definatley saw a strong bond between classmates. flexibility in rotations was a plus, alon with the other opportunities that are offered to the class. my interviewer engaged me on a couple of topics that weren't generic and came up in the course of my answers. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"interviews are blind, so the interviewer knows nothing unless you tell them. the idea is that they are supposed to learn about you as a person, but they ask questions about all the stuff that comes up in your file anyway. my interviewer was easy to talk to and relaxed. i liked him, but had he been able to get some background on me first, alot of my answers whould have made more sense and communication would have been easier. its almost like you feel you have to toot you own horn to let them know what your capable of. some of the classrooms look a little beat up, but he clinical facilities are great."
