Seems to be lots of medical opportunities in the city. And yea, the students do amazing on their Step 1..." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Ok a couple things...and not tryin to beat down on the school.. 1) Very lil or no diversity. I'm international, and love meetin pple of all races/color etc., but Indiana is VERY VERY HOMOGENOUS. An indianapolis, and ya the med school itself is idk very homogenous if you catch my drift ie. very white. If thats how you like your coffee, then go for it. But ja that was idk not too cool.. 2) Idk I talked to just a few med students...and unlike the other med school's i've interviewed at, I just didnt feel the vibe and excitement from the med students to be there. I just cldn't feel it at all. Mayb it was cos they were havin exams or something, but it just wasnt there. And ja, just a few of them came to sit n chill n talk w us. Kinda weird, but no real excitement to be there at all... Maybe it was just me tho'.. 3) VERY VERY EXPENSIVE for out of state..just ridiculous. REAL turn off, I was like what the heck!??" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Lots of downtime if you didnt have the sweeeeeeeeeeeet schedule that I did. You cld interview at any time of the day, from 9am, or even at 3pm...so be prepared. I had a sweet day, and had stuff back to back till 2pm, was done then. But many were not soo lucky. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Make sure you write your feedback too when you're done, esp if this helped you. This is my own way of sayin thnx to those that wrote before me.... any questions, hit me up...i think my sdn name is chiz2kul...i think..lol Oh yea one more thing...if you're into saving money, try stayin w a student, cos hotels there are really expensive. I stayed w this md/phd kid that had his own house, and I got my own room and free dinner and transport to the school of medicine. oh shoot i gotta mail.. him a card or something later lol And ja, public trans is not soo good, taxi's can get expensive, costs about 30 bucks or so to the school, so try using carey. Or you can split w a student on your ride back to the airport in a texi...;) Thats what I did, and ended up payin like 10 bucks lol you gotta do what you gotta do.." Report Response
