What impressed you positively?

"How new the facilities are, that all the clinical rotations can be done in Milwaukee, the friendliness of the students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I went to lecture in the morning, and it is a very large class-over 200 students-not so sure that it is my cup of tea. Not the most diverse class in the world either-I only counted a handful of minority students in the entire lecture hall. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the pediatric hospital on campus is one of the best in the nation and is only a tunnel or two away from the lecture hall. Also, the school is not yet as technically advanced as others--lectures for example are not yet videotaped and made available online. Also, and perhaps most importantly, at this point the interview counts for everything! GPA and MCAT no longer come into the picture. Also, there is a mysterious additional interview for certain applicants after the first two-not sure if that is a good or a bad thing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a good day, but not a great day. I had a faculty interview with whom I felt reasonably comfortable, but I felt like she was just moving down a list of things that she needed to cover and she didn't really allow a good conversation to develop. My second interview was with a student and she was much more difficult to connect with especially when her first question was, "So, tell me about your life." It just never flowed easily and was filled with semi-awkward pauses. However, I don't think she was bothered at all by this. Overall, I felt like my interviews went as well as possible."
