"Everyone was really nice. We passed a lot of students on our tour, and everyone stopped to wish us good luck. Also, the extensive hospital system is very impressive. You get to see any and all kinds of cases. One student said she had just seen a patient with some kind of rare disease, that only there were only 40 documented cases of that disease in the world.

What are your general comments?

"When I got to the Admission's Office, there were a few med students there. They weren't part of the tour. They just wanted free coffee & donuts, but they still were very helpful. They talked about their experiences at UM. Then we had a couple of talks, then the interview. My interviewer was really nice. He made me talk about my entire life during the interview, as in starting with where I was born. Then we talked about pre-high school, high school, then college. You should probably read over your AMCAS app. Then he talked about UM and what he liked about it. Then a few of us went on a tour. We walked around the campus, saw the ER and trauma units at Jackson, & went through the Wellness Center (which is beautiful). We then had lunch with a bunch of med students. They were really helpful. Then we got a financial aid talk and were told what happens to our app when we leave. It was nice, because they gave us an exact date. I was really impressed overall" Report Response
