How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over SDN questions. I would say all, or almost all, of the questions they asked me could be taken verbatim off of SDN over the past several months." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Nice weather. Seems like a school that will prepare you to be a competent physician. Good pass rates. More of a younger crowd on interview day than I had at another interview. The interviewers were very nice!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that there will be a 100 student increase for next year (probably causing problems in anatomy lab). The fact that we didn't get to interact with students (probably because it was a Monday, exam day, but they still should have been there for lunch at least). Only 1 student came by to talk with us. The fact that the tour was given by an admissions person. The library was very small. Most of the campus is still undergoing construction." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The 61,000 tuition. Dang! For this price, I expect a gym (which is still to be built), a bigger library and a clearer explanation from the admissions office about how they will coordinate the 100 student increase, which I didn't get." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the interview was very pleasant. They asked questions that you can get verbatim off of SDN interview feedback. Read it over and be prepared. If I hadn't done this, the interview would not have gone as smoothly. Besides the interview, I wasn't overly impressed by the school. It's very expensive, and is still in a transition phase. In a couple years it will be very good, but for next year, I would rather go somewhere else. I hope I will have that choice. I stayed at the Ramada Limited and it was fine. I recommend it."
