What was the most interesting question?

"what about going into medicine scares you?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"questions by one of the two interviewers indicated that they felt strongly about funding and implementation of universal healthcare, and their stance was very different from my opinion. Needed to answer questions with this in mind so as to respect the interviewers opinions and continue the interview in a positive way." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, bought a book by a U of Colorado person about med school interviews, spoke with med students who'd been accepted (and not accepted) after interviewing at the school." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Campus was in great shape and designed with nice touches, like fridges & microwaves in each "bay" along with 30 or so lockers on the first floor. Students were very nice when we had lunch with them." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"This is likely a reality at many schools, but I could see the distinction between the "25 yr old" and the "35 yr old" student body, they followed very different extracurricular paths and seemed to stay together in groups. The area is still pretty undeveloped related to restaurants and cultural things, but this will likely change in future years" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I'd been to the campus before so this was OK, but would suggest that any visitors get there a little early as parking is somewhat confusing to get to/figure out." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"school seems to be pretty oriented toward more experienced candidates (at least a few years' work experience after college) in my opinion. Colorado is a very laid back state in general, although not nearly as culturally diverse as large east coast/west coast cities." Report Response
