How did you prepare for the interview?

"I asked my best friend (who is an M1 at Creighton) a LOT of questions! I really didn't prepare much...I looked over information about the Magis Clinic, but they tell you all the information that you need to know about the school before you interview. Just try to go and be yourself!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The professors, the Associate Dean of Admissions, all the students seem REALLY happy! The school emphasizes BALANCE (it's a really big deal there)!! Also, even though they are a Jesuit school, I am not religious and they really did not care at all. They are open to everyone, and the whole interview process in VERY laid back and relaxing! My best interview BY FAR!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. My tour guide kind of cut my tour of the campus short, but my friend took me back and showed me EVERYTHING! I would stay with someone in the host program, and have them take you on an individual tour of campus separately." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Omaha is actually a REALLY cool town! Also, Creighton does all of their exams on computers, and their questions are all board-style, multiple choice exam question. So they really prepare you well for the boards! Also, second year medical students have practice practicals for you anatomy lab exams the Friday before the exam. They REALLY help, and they go through and tag everything that is really difficult on the test. It's A GREAT SCHOOL!!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Read all of what I wrote above. The school is GREAT, and they make you feel like you are a major asset to their program. They sell YOU the school, not the other way around. I just have to say that you should totally relax. These interviews are CAKE compared to all your other interviews that you will have. It's AMAZING! Beautiful medical school, beautiful campus, and beautiful hospital! Well organized, and a overall great experience. Just take a step back, forget your interview worries, and soak up all the information! HAVE FUN!!!" Report Response
