What are your general comments?

"Check in for interview is 7:15-8:30. Wear a coat and possibly a rain coat becuase you will have to wait just inside the base entrance for the shuttle. When you sign in, have all your security forms, etc. handy. After sign in, you are conducted to a large meeting room where you sit and wait until 8:30. Most interviews I've done have had about 6-8 students. There were probably 20-25 at this interview. It was intimidating for a civilian since over half the group was in uniform. From 8:30-11:30 you listen to very informative briefings about the curriculum, the military aspect of a USUHS student's life, etc. At 11:30 you get your sheet telling who you will interview with and at what time. Most are conducted in the library. Before the interview, a first or second year student will take you on a tour and then to lunch. You must pay for your own food. My student guide took me to my interviewer. My first was with a 4th year student. He was very laid back and let me ask 30 minutes worth of questions basically. The second was with an orthopaedic surgeon who works at Walter Reed. I heard other interviewees that had a bad experience with him. I didn't have a problem, just thought he was quiet and more reserved. Neither interview mentioned my academics. The only thing in my file that either brought up was a trip I took to Russia. The rest was just for me to ask questions. By the way, your interviewers only write up a report for the committee. They do not sit on the committee. After my interview, I checked out at the admission office. I was done around 3:30, others were probably there until 4:30." Report Response
