How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, researched the school's website extensively, read over application. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The Dean...Mitchell Forman is awesome. There's something about him that demands respect. The students there are enthusiastic and intelligent. The faculty was also obviously intelligent, although a little bit intimidating. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't think certain individuals of the staff were as 'friendly' as noted on this web site. Being a Judaic school, only kosher food is served at the cafeteria. The campus, as mentioned in an earlier SDN posting, is in the middle of car dealerships. Las Vegas is a bit shady in general, but at least there is alot to do in the surrounding areas!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interview was not as 'easy' as people on SDN had stated. I got a ride back to my hotel with two other interviewees, and they were also grilled during their interviews on the weakest parts of their applications. Also, the school highly recommends taking a course in biochemistry, anatomy, or molecular biology (which is pretty standard I guess), but it almost seemed like a requirement. So try to get a couple of those out of the way if attendng there! " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview (I applied late), so I was really nervous. But the first thing that happened when I got to the school was I met other interviewees who were waiting in the lobby. I was joking with them about the SDN posting that said the surrounding area goes "Toyota Dealer, Honda Dealer...med school", and just as I finished saying that, Roger Corbman came out and (I think) heard me! Anyway, we met in a small room and were given a presentation on the school, and introduced ourselves. My interview was supposed to be at 9:30 AM, but didn't happen until 11:30 AM, which threw me off a bit. I was REEALLY nervous for the interview (again it was my first one). The two faculty that interviewed me were obviously highly intelligent and intensely serious. They definitely made me feel like I was not going to get in, but I did! I got the feeling the interview experience was so intense because it was late March, and they were accepting most people by that point, but wanted interviewees to feel lucky if they did get accepted. But I'm mistrustful by nature :o). Overall, the school was really impressive. It's curriculum is solid, the faculty are knowledgable, and the students seemed great. The student who gave us a tour of the campus was the nicest guy. I did get into the school, and am happily accepting their offer even though I was accepted elsewhere too. " Report Response
