"What changes could be made to fix/improve the US medical system? -Not a difficult question; a stand-by in mock interviews. Why I want to pursue the various things I do, and how I can actually make it all work. -Again not difficult if you've talked about it with other people." Report Response

"Reviewed all the material available on the school website, mock interviews with other med school applicants I know." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The new campus and Colorado are beautiful. Emphasis of the curriculum on functional units eg Blood and Lymph rather than academic divisions. Preceptorships beginning first year." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The new campus is a bit isolated - 15 minutes from other downtown hospitals, housing, etc. Current students report some classes are very strong; some (biochem) are very weak due to cycling of professors. Out-of-state tuition is high, and one cannot switch to in-state costs during the four year program." Report Response
