How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN interview feedback. Spent a good bit of time looking at the website, which really has an answer for every question that you may have about the program; great website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The positive, family-like atmosphere. Everybody had a great attitude/personality. If your dressed like a typical applicant, employees and students spot you and make a point to say hi and good luck. " Report Response

"Living arrangments and parking situation leaves a lot to be desired. The majority of the student body (ugrad + grad) commutes to work, and there doesn't appear to be enough parking to cover everyone." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really. Again, if you are really interested in the Boonshoft Program, then you probably spent a good deal of time looking over their website, which has every bit of information that you could want." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great experience, overall. I live in Columbus so the commute was pretty much hassle free. I even lucked out with the weather; with unseasonably warm and sunny weather, you can see the potential the campus/area has. Not as lively as Columbus, but not as bad some make it out to be. I'm sure a med student is too busy to notice anyways... Again, as I was dressed in a suit and tie and wandering around looking lost, I might as well have been carrying a neon sign and a shouting through a bullhorn to let everyone know that I was there for an interview. As such, everybody - from students to staff to faculty - went out of their way to wish me luck and ask if they could help me out or direct me to where I should be. I think that says as much as anything about the program. I know from looking at the class schedule that the MS-1s just had a big exam and were probably pretty stressed, yet they still took the time to help me out and tell me about the curriculum, etc. ...Pretty cool. The interviews were as stress free as they could be. Some students interview one faculty member and one MS-II, but I interviewed with two faculty members. Both interviews lasted about 50 - 60 minutes, but I noticed that other applicants spent considerably less time in their interviews... maybe as little as 20 minutes. " Report Response
