"Facilities at Anchutz (Fitzsimmons) Campus. Friendly students. Welcoming environment. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My first interviewer was a jerk but said I did well. I found the whole day unprofessional compared with some of the other schools I interviewed at. Although the facilities are great, there is no gym, no close amenities, a sense of mediocrity amongst students and general lack of intensity I found on the East Coast. Moreover, the interviewers didn't have my GPA or MCAT score but asked about them anyway which I thought was totally stupid!" Report Response

"I wish I would have know my interviewer was going to do half my interview in Spanish (I had mentioned my experience on my application). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day began at 8AM, ended at 2:30PM. Long walking tour and bad parking situation. I basically had two one-on-one hour long interviews. One interviewer barely gave me enough time to answer his questions and the other name-dropped good institutions that person worked at as if to validate the school. Big focus on primary care. Not a lot of scholarship money. " Report Response
