What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Lunch happens after the tour. I wish I had known to bring snacks so I wouldn't have been in the cadaver lab with an empty stomach!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We arrived at 8:30, and some of the staff met with us one on one to make sure that our files were complete. Then we had the usual schpiel from the director of admissions (not the dean)which thankfully did not mention anything about financial aid or any of the negative aspects of med school that we are all already quite aware of. Then we had one morning interview at either 10 or 11. The tour started at 12, and was mainly focused on the children's hospital, then a brief stop on campus--be prepared to see a cadaver! Also, bring or wear comfortable shoes! Lunch was at 1 in the conference room with the tour guides(two second year students), the dean of admissions, and the director of admissions. The dean, who made his first appearance at lunch, will ask if you have any questions. Have questions! Afternoon interviews were at 2 or 3, then the day is over." Report Response
