"I looked at the college's viewbook, SDN Interview Feedback, and spoke to current medical students and graduates for advice." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I was pleased with how nice all of the staff was to the prospective students and how the interviews were very conversational. I also enjoyed the choice one has in curricular tracts and also how the students have early clinical contact experiences with real patients at the local hospital and in the surrounding area in the first quarter of school. And by the way, if you don't like the PCC tract there, you can switch out of it to the more structured CPC within the first two weeks of school instead of having to sit out the year. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The university has a rule regarding parking passes and that you have to be outside of one mile to qualify for one. Of course it seemed a lot of the more desireable apartments were within this mile, and with the hills in Athens this would make for quite a hike every morning to school. Perhaps an exception could be made for graduate students? " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The pictures they take of you on interview day will become your ID photo if you choose to attend. Had I known that, I would have had a better smile." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The beginning of the day consisted of the usual, such as the admissions overview, financial aid presentation, and a tour. After lunch was when the interviews began, and all of my interviews were very conversational. I was asked a few pointed questions at first and then it just went from there. The college is in a very beautiful area and has all the amenities that a larger university can offer as opposed to some of the smaller, private institutions. Athens is quite the college town and there's all kinds of bands that play there and things of the sort." Report Response
