What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"The rest of the time was spent listening to them talk about "coming soon" attractions to the school. They were def. trying to sell it...didn't work." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Not a whole lot...maybe the classic "why do" question. Or the one about if I could see myself living in Nevada (hint: they want people to stay there after graduation)." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None were all that difficult, but the interview was BORING. I mean, I was IN IT and I was bored. No unique questions at all. I did what I could to make it interesting but...meh. Plus one guy was late, so some of my interview time was spent tracking him down. Disappointing overall - I was hoping I would really like this school, and I didn't." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, the other 4 interviews I had before this one." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is new. I guess that's nice. Roger is personable - one of the good things this school has going for it. THey do email decisions if you ask them to." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lots...weather, tour guides telling us that OMM dress code was sports bra and shorts "at all DO schools" - totally wrong. It's not. Just there (and maybe TUCOM-CA). Cafeteria...oh, wait, WHAT cafeteria? Their waitlist policy SUCKS. Sounds like once you're on it, there's no chance for you. Plus, they don't tell you where you are on it. TUCOM-CA at least tells you high, medium, low. Forget about traveling for your rotations - a whole year of them are ALL in Nevada. Too bad if there's something interesting you want to do elsewhere. Their budget is based off of the NY school - which does not have a medical school as part of it. That just seems...stupid. One of the interviewers suggested taking a master's program and reapplying....I already had multiple acceptances - clearly, this won't be happening. Seriously, why is this school inviting people to interview if they haven't accepted our stats? Mine are actually pretty decent. Their research opportunities weren't very good at all. Overall, it was pretty easy for me to cross this school off my list, accepted or not." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I disliked the school so much that there was no point going. Seriously, if I knew of a good way to leave midway thru the day, I would have." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"BLAH. Not impressed at all. I'm glad I had multiple acceptances already." Report Response
