What impressed you negatively?

"The lack of current students. It seemed like we were really far away from campus/student life (Probably due to the temporary relocation of the admissions office). Only one student met with us for 20-30 minutes during lunch. There was a lot of waiting during the interview process. We didn't get to see any simulators or the anatomy lab. " Report Response

"The lack of student interaction - I would have asked more questions during lunch. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was poorly organized. We arrived at 7:30ish, expecting to start at 7:45. We didn't get started until 8:15 - but during the half hour time span, no one told us what was going on. Then we had a GREAT presentation by a professor and admissions individual about the curriculum, residency placements, etc. (This was the best part of the interview day). Interviews began at 9am and while not interviewing, there was a financial aid presentation. Then we had lunch and toured from 1-2 (be prepared for the heat). The day ended at 2 with a brief wrap-up by the admissions office. Overall the day was ok, if it hadn't been for the great talk in the morning I don't know if I would still be interested in AZCOM.
