What impressed you positively?

"Even though this is a well established and "ranked" school I was impressed by the respect and friendliness of the interviewers and other staff towards me as compared to some DO schools that I have interviewed at: NOVA and KCOM. At these two DO schools they ragged on me about your MCAT even though my GPA is above most applicants!! So, if they are not happy about the scores why invite me for an interview? Just to make me feel little? Now, on the other hand Utah has style. I hope I get accepted." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The 4th year student who interviewed me was a pleasant person; made me feel very welcomed. No arrogance there! He was surprised at the hours I had put into volunteering, clinical observations and research activities. How did I do so much? The MD that interviewed me asked me typical questions and questioned my research experience. Looked up in the computer if what I said was valid about my research experience. Fortunately he found it! He was very pleasant and kind. A good experience. " Report Response
