How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reviewed AMCAS and secondary essays. Went over some basic interview questions, especially "Why medicine" and "Why Netter." Make sure to research the program well, as they will ask you multiple times why you are interested in the school and they definitely are looking for "good fit" candidates." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything! I loved the school. Faculty and students were EXTREMELY nice and friendly. It was obvious that the faculty and administration really care about the students' success and happiness. Facilities are brand new and beautiful, strong focus on a primary care foundation but NOT overbearingly so, significant early clinical exposure through the Medical Student Home (MeSH program), the list goes on." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not quite negative, but there are obvious concerns with a new program - they have not graduated a class, matched, or even had 4th year students yet. However, I am not worried after hearing about the program. Location is quiet and somewhat isolated/boring, but not too far from NYC or Boston." Report Response
