What impressed you positively?

"You can eat as much food from the cafeteria that you want when you have lunch (people were eating ~$20 meals), the student ambassadors were very enthousiastic. They gave us great info about what sets their program apart from others - which was good to hear since my interview was later in the day, and the cpre teaching hospital and the rest of the health campus is all connected to eachother via tunnels (it gets cold in MN in the winter). They are renovating all the classrooms." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I was pretty well informed about everything, but people should read up on the MED 2010 initiative, the flex MD program, and the U of MN's goal to become a top 3 public research institution in the next decade. They want to know why you want to attend there, and you might interview early in the day before the presentations about this material" Report Response

"Very laid back and informative. I didn't have any hard ethical questions, just a ''get to know me'' interview. " Report Response
