What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That if Michigan is not playing a good team on the weekend, you could easily score tickets to the game, I wished I stayed on Saturday! Also, that I should not have lost a minute of sleep over this interview because it was not stressful at all." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Michigan does an amazing job selling itself every step of the way, the culture of the school and even the admissions process is very welcoming and refreshing compared to other schools. The three thirty minute interviews are in two shifts in the morning, they tell you who your interviewers are in the morning. Their health sciences campus is very large so you might need help getting to the right place. There's also a very entertaining e-mail that you get if you're accepted. Good luck!" Report Response
