"Fellow interviewees were amazing people. Campus is small and clean-looking." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Boredom and apathy of interviewers. Little research opportunities. Hospital seems very empty with very little activity. Some students were not enthusiastic. Powerpoint talks in the morning were too stiff and memorized...boring. They keep talking about ''fit for the school,'' but students don't really define what that means very well." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started off in a conference room. There were about 26-28 interviewees...way too many to make you feel comfortable. Current students immediately sit down next to you, which is awkward, because we don't have a chance to settle in and meet other interviewees first. The speech by the admissions director and financial aid person was done on powerpoint and was WAY too rehearsed and dull. I prefer a more natural talk/discussion. My first student interview was an M4, but he was not friendly. He made no eye contact and never smiled (just stared at clipboard). Some questions he asked seemed to be as if he was trying to pick out weaknesses. Faculty interviewer was quiet and non-conversational. Lots of discrete questions, rather those that go with the flow. She didn't seem interested in knowing me and said she ''already has my AMCAS.'' Interview lasted only 20 minutes. I was much more impressed by interviewees than current students. Creighton needs to work on selling themselves better and making the interview experience more enjoyable. The hospital is really small and not busy at all. I'm a bit skeptical about the richness of the clinical experience. " Report Response
