What was the most interesting question?

"''How come your grades are so low but you're such an articulate person?'' This upset me because I don't think they realized who they were interviewing. My undergrad GPA, though not awesome, is a 3.6. I felt embarrassed answering that question because I have not gotten anything lower than an A in 3 years. They did not even take the time to put a name with a file and then translate that into CONSTRUCTIVE questions. Considering their average acceptance GPA is a 3.2, I'm sure my 3.6 is not THAT low. It made me feel like crap." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The most interesting quetion I was asked was ''How come you have not taken more science coursework? Such as Human Anatomy & Physiology'' It was awful because not only was my undergrad major Biology, I have taken A&P I and II, and took Medical Gross Anatomy at South Alabama as MEDICAL SCHOOL CREDIT. I basically had to remind them to re-review my file and tell them they were wrong. That made it so weird. They don't have the file in front of them, and they don't really know or care who you are. They just read off a pre-set list of questions on a form and fill them in, never looking up at you." Report Response

"SDN, preparing answers, studying" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There are no lectures!!!! They expect you to pour over all the endless resources from books to the internet to receive your education. If this is the case, then why is tuition $40k a year? Who are we paying????" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"PBL, awful. There is no cadaver dissection, completely eliminating the essence of what its like to discover the human body for yourself. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers were completely impersonal, the admissions staff and students seem like they have a rehearsed, choreographed song and dance to try to CONVINCE you to go to their school, complete with a realtor to come visit to talk about buying property. The day lasted ENTIRELY too long, we arrived at 9:30 and they finally let us go at 3:30. Please, please, please know what you're getting into before you apply here. I was open-minded and optimistic, I left feeling like a prisoner." Report Response
