The school is highly ranked and highly respected, can't beat that!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started pretty early (8am). The Assistant Dean of Admissions gives a powerpoint presentation of the school, then we recieve our schedules for the day. There were 3 interviews total: one with a person from admissions, one with a student and one with faculty. The faculty interview si the really important one. Interviews can start as early as 10am and end as late as 4:30, so the day is VERY spread out. There was a lot of downtime to get to know the other interviewees, sit in on lectures or talk to current med students. The group came back together for lunch (stuffed pizza!) and some med students come in to talk to us and give us a tour of the campus. After the tour, interviews continue and when you are done with your last interview you are free to go." Report Response
