What impressed you positively?

"I was very impressed with how the school & interviewers genuinely backed up their claim to want to just get to know me rather than trap me intellectually or make me feel uncomfortable. Also, the future campus at Fitzsimons will be incredible." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The current campus facilities are obviously dated, (but this is the last year for studies there). The student guides seemed a bit apathetic, but to their credit, they did just get done with exams. And they want to increase the class size to 156 this year, but I don't see how their classrooms can fit that many right now." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That CU requires more units of English credit than most every other school. If I get in, I'll have to take a summer english class, which is a bummer." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We met in the morning in a single room packed with 25-30 other applicants and this admissions guy explained what our day would be like, went through our packet of info., and tried to entertain us for a while. Then the assistant dean of admissions came in and went through a power point presentation about the history and stats of the school, answered questions,etc. He was a cool guy. We had a break for like 15-25 minutes, and then our interviewers lined up at the doorway and called names one-by-one. We went to an empty classroom and talked for about 30 minutes, then I came back and had a break for about 10 minutes and had a similar second interview. Then we had some time before some of the current med. students took us to lunch and then showed us around on a tour of the current campus facilities. Then we took a bus ride to the new campus and toured that." Report Response
