How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, reviewed my secondary and AMCAS essays, asked my roommate's brother (a student there) about the Jesuit ideals." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Very relaxed day. The students honestly seem happy to be there and the teachers seem dedicated to developing them into doctors rather than taking their money and getting some research out of them." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview process only took an hour (two interviews at 30 min a piece) but somehow the day stretched from 8 to 3. Since this was my first interview the informational briefs they gave were useful, but they'll be a waste of time later in the year for students who have already heard it elsewhere." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The building is a little hard to get directions to, I had to ask a nursing student I knew there. Also, the interviewee group was 30 people, and you get to know some of them by the end of the day since its so long." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Service Academy applicants-this is a service dress/Class A uniform friendly school. Most of the interviewees asked me about the HPSP scholarship, so it helps to be knowledgable on that." Report Response
