"The age of parts of the school, the surrounding area. Some parts of the school definitely show their age, some parts have been recently renovated though. Hearing about the surrounding neighborhood and the presence of security at the entrance to the school was kind of weird." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There around 20-30 other applicants on interview day. The day started with a tour of the school/facilities and hospital given by a med student. We then had lunch with the med students with a talk given by the dean. The dean seemed really nice and genuinely interested in our success. We then returned to a conference room for a financial aid talk and then waited for our interviewers to get us. Overall, the day was less stressful than I thought it was going to be. The interview was very conversational about my application and allowed me to tell my story/insight into medicine." Report Response
