"Read a handful of interview feedbacks on SDN. I did not review my file or do any sort of major preparation. I was already accepted into a school earlier this cycle and I just wanted to get to know this school and see what it has to offer. My strategy worked out very well as my stress level was pretty much nil." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I ran into several students in the hallway and pretty much all of them asked if I was interviewing (I was suited after all) and they wished me well. The student guide was informative and gave us a pretty complete tour of the school. There is a small gym and b-ball court in the building. The facilities all loooked new and modern. The staff and people in the building were all friendly." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was a little skeptical when I was flying into Vegas as the scenary was drastically different from home. However I spent 2 days in town before the interview and was comfortable with my surroundings by the time I left. Nothing at the school in particular impressed me negatively. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the school was all in one building and eveyone is very close together, this is different than the traditional multi-level medical school with a hospital next door that I have visited." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"In 3 days I was turned around from skeptical of Henderson to believing that I could live there esp. for a minimum of 4 years if I attended school there. the staff at the school were all great, the students seemed very close and non-competitive with the academics. It seems like an environment I would like to study in. It is a new school with no graduates to speak of as of yet but it looks promising. I would STRONGLY consider attending if accepted. I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND visiting if invited for an interview. " Report Response
