What impressed you positively?

"The encouragement the interviewer gave in trying to make it a friendly-type conversation. The graduate students we spoke with were very honest in terms of what to expect on the Island of Dominica. The faculty seems aware that most of us would not have applied if we had options in the US. They presented their school in a fair and positive light. In general, everybody was very nice and friendly." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Larkin hospital where some of the family practice rotations are done. The hopsital was very small. The ICU only had three beds. On the other hand, it might be nice to start out in a small place before doing rotations in a larger area." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interviewers were not faculty at Ross. Though they had visited the Island and seemed knowledgeable about the workings of the school, they really couldn't give much information as to how the classes are." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was very nice. I was nervous at the begining, but the interviewer was really nice and that helped me to relax. He wrote almost everything I said down. Which was a bit distracting, but I made myself focus on the questions he was asking. The whole day was short in general. There was a video presentation about Ross, in which former and current students spoke about thier experiences. The day ended with lunch with dean of admissions and the interviews. That was the most relaxing part and fun part." Report Response
