What impressed you positively?

"The students were really friendly and all smiled/said hi as they passed us. The med school is BEAUTIFUL, and the hospitals are really nice as well (although extremely confusing...). The information sessions throughout the day are probably the most informative of any I have had so far (bring LOTS of questions to ask, because chances are all of your standard ones will be answered in the morning orientation session)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not one student I talked to claimed to have anything they disliked about the school. It's great that they're happy, but I don't buy that there isn't ONE thing they don't like about their school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Madison is really committed to blending your MD education with public health studies (thus both being part of one school), and is hoping within a few years ~25% of the med students will also pursue an MPH." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day started at 8 AM and finished around 2:30 PM. It is extremely laid back. You have a few different presentations (about the curriculum, school, hospitals, financial aid, diversity, etc) throughout the day. Two tours: the med school and the hospitals. Two interviews: one-on-one with a faculty member and a group interview with 2 med students and ~4 applicants. The student interview is 45 min long and is also really informal. Come with questions though, as the med students ask very few and mainly want to tell you about their own experience." Report Response
