How did you prepare for the interview?

"read about the school, gave some thought to common questions from studentdoctor.net U.Michigan reviews" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone at the school was very nice and the interviewers were laid back. No one tried to make the day stressful. U. Michigan seems to truly care about student feedback, and as a result their unique program has details, such as the flex quizzes, that allow students to adjust their schedule and have a life outside of medicine." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview group was very large, almost 50 prospective students. We were told they do this on purpose to show us how big the school really is." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"This was my first interview. I was surprised to find prospective students didn't seem overly friendly, beyond what was required for being on their best behavior. Maybe this was due to the element of competition, simply the stress of the day, or the fact that I was the only student from my school when many other students hung out in a group with their classmates. However, this feeling of false friendliness was NOT reflected in the medical students who attend U.Michigan." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was an exhausting day, but a great one. I learned a lot about the school and what life is like as a student at U.Michigan. Every representative from the school was very friendly and sincere. I absolutely fell in love with the school. " Report Response
