How did you prepare for the interview?

"I think the most important thing was to stay calm. I did read over the questions posted here and tried to think of something to say, but I didn't rehearse answers or anything, because I still wanted to sound spontaneous and honest, not rehearsed." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I am from the upper peninnsula, so it was nice to have the option of interviewing in Marquette. It took tons of the stress out of the process." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing, really. I loved my experience. However, I want to go into rural medicine, and this campus does have a focus on that. A student who wants to go into a specialty or work in an urban area may feel like a bit of a fish out of water, although it was not the case for me!" Report Response

"It isn't as stressful or confrontational as I expected it to be. However, I think if someone had told me that ahead of time I wouldn't have beleived them!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I felt welcome at the interveiws, and actually enjoyed the experience. My interviewers really looked like they had read my file carefully. I only interveiwed with 2 other people, so it was a more personal experience, and was less assembly-lined than I have heard that interveiws can be. Interviewing in Marquette, Michigan is something I would recommend to people not only from the UP, but also northern Wisconsin and even Minnesota. " Report Response
