How did you prepare for the interview?

"Studied application, reviewed typical interview questions, drove to temporary office location/new medical school building day prior to interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Curriculum - Integrative Biomedical modeled after Univ of Colorado's program. Based on the Professor of Anatomy (Dr. Buck), anatomy lab will be of adequate proportion to support 4 (no more) students per dissection tank (at least 30-35 tanks) and that other anatomic/biomedical learning aids will be state-of-the-art (video/hologram/on-site clinical training/lectures). *RVU received provisional accreditation with an unprecedented zero deficiencies." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Current lack of federal aid based on the new status of school. As a consolation, RVU board has locked in tuition for the 4 years and they are researching other modes of financing for the first year students. It's likely that federal aid will be available after 2 years through the creation of other planned allied health schools." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the RVU-COM educational model was that of an integrative biomedical model in order to prepare for COMLEX/& USMLE as well as life as a successful physician. In addition, I would have liked to have known more about the excellent rotation sites for clinicals prior to interview so I could have inquired further. Regardless, I obtained this information later. " Report Response
