What are your general comments?

"When we first arrived, we were given a breakfast buffet. There was a general information session, then half of the group interviewed while my half got a demonstration of the computer lab and a financial aid presentation. The groups then switched. There were three one on one interviews; I had one M3 and 2 MD interviews, but some people were interviewed by 2 med students and one professor. Then it was lunch time with the current students. Quite a few came, and the admissions staff all left the room so you could talk candidly. Then there were student led tours of the facilities. Be prepared for lots of walking! At the end, you fill out evaluations of your interviewers and the entire day while getting more snacks and pie. Overall, I was extremely impressed with UM. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful, and the whole atmosphere of the school was cheerful and enthusiastic about the opportunities offered." Report Response
