How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, AZCOM website, my ever-so-helpful mother peppering me with possible interview questions at random times." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"BEAUTIFUL landscaping, clean buildings, very close student housing, students were very friendly and approached us at lunch, other interviewees were very nice (I keep running into them at other interviews - kinda nice to know someone), lunch was decent (lots of choices), school is very proud of their board scores, relaxed atmosphere. They also gave us a nice little speech at the beginning about how we were all qualified numbers-wise, so to focus on letting others see the "real" us. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Interview day could have been thought out better...lots of sitting around. Also, my interview group only had 3 other girls in it and about 12 guys. I'm a little concerned with the small amount of technology the school has - no laptops in class, etc. However, their board scores are reallllly good, so I suppose it doesn't matter. Tuition is a bit high, and they expect it to go up 4-6% per year." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Hot weather + slightly loose stilletos = shoes that kept slipping during the tour. It's HOT there. I know everyone says that and it's one of those "duh" things...but it's a little different than, say, Florida hot." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was interviewed by three people - DO, PhD, med student. All three were very nice. I don't know why some people had all those ethical questions while I had none. Luck of the draw, I guess. I was happy when I left the interview, and I guess they liked me too since I got the acceptance call about a week ago." Report Response
