What impressed you positively?

"even though many students were gone because of the break, the med students that came were excellent. i can tell it is a close family. the faculty (including the admissions personnel) are great and warming as well. the faculty stressed the development of the whole person not just spewing out medical doctors at the end of four years." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"it seems that this med school focuses on numbers, but they reassure you that you have pretty good chances of acceptance once you receive an interview. I heard about the STAN machinery but our group didn't get to see it. It was not negative (we did get to see HARVEY which most students will not see),however, I was anticipating it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"not all the students who sign up for the research track neccessarily get an interview with the head of the research track (I did not). to bring a heavy coat around winter time " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"my first interview was very direct which took me aback at first but then I realized his purpose for doing so. The questions from him were fair and flowed very well. I did not feel that the interview was a bunch of questions but was more of a conversation. My second interviewer had a list of questions prepared and again like a conversation. She also had questions that stemmed directly from my application and seemed to memorize or know a couple of things about me. In general, I think the committee does a great job matching you with an interviewer who has your same research/medical interests. good luck!" Report Response
