"I didn't like that the student interview was during lunch. I felt like I couldn't eat because I had to talk, and it was very awkward." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If I didn't already feel comfortable in the school and know all about it, I probably would have had a stressful day. The first part with the presentation about the school was excellent (much better than other schools' presentations have been), but it went over time a bit. Then I had to go with 2 other interviewees down to Hahnemann Hospital for my interview (actually, I interviewed in the building I work in every day!). Becuase we had to take the shuttle, we missed the whole tour. Then the shuttle just didn't show up, though (I ride the shuttle twice a day and this is the first time it hasn't shown up), so we were late. I had to wait for another girl to have her interview before me, and then my interview ran a little late, and so I had to take a later shuttle back to the med school campus. It wasn't a big deal, but it delayed my lunch and student interview. The faculty interview was fine, a typical interview but not stressful. The student interview was very short (perhaps because it was late), but casual and fine. I was offered a tour after that, since I had missed the real tour, but I know the school so I just went home. Overall I left with a very positive impression of the school from the presentation and also just from what I already know. (Faculty interview is open file, student interview is closed.)"
