What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are great: Lots of construction is going on, but it seems like once it's over the med school campus will be state-of-the-art. Also, the staff is extremely friendly and enthusiastic, and their sense of pride for UNC is infectious! Although there were different interviewers assigned to the students, most of them made it a point to come to the waiting room and introduce themselves to the rest of us, which made the process very casual and laid back." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The medical school campus is huge...so there will be lots of walking!! Bring comfortable shoes! You also have to pay to park, but it's only $6." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you're new to Chapel Hill (which luckily I wasn't), you might want to bring a campus map and/or arrive early. All the construction can make finding the buildings pretty difficult for visitors. MacNider Building (admissions office) is very well-hidden from plain sight and is tucked away behind the Health Sciences library. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There were about 9-10 students in my group and we all had different interviewers for the most part. So, there was a constant flux of interviewees coming in and going out of the waiting room. Overall, the entire group was pretty social and willing to offer advice about their past interview experiences, either at UNC or at other schools. My interviewers (a psychiatrist and a professor emeritus) had definately looked over my AMCAS profile thoroughly, which made the actual interview run very smoothly. After the interview, we had lunch with the medical students, followed by a tour of the medical campus (hospitals, classrooms, library etc). " Report Response
