What impressed you negatively?

"Ultra jaded professor interviewed me. Even though he was new, seemed to have a very glum view on the entire field at large. Bizarre. So being optimistic, I feel, almost hurt my chances." Report Response

No Response

What are your general comments?

"Honestly, I wasn't impressed by the way the interview day was conducted. Entire group of 32 students sat around for 45 minutes after the scheduled start time. Lots of the staff were standing around joking with each other, delaying almost everything on the itinerary. There is a writing portion. Don't stress out...the questions are indeed used later in your interview. For example, they may ask you to elaborate. Be thinking about those questions throughout the day. Hopefully they will ask you to expand on these questions, lest they drill you with ethics questions. No dress code for students is pretty much the coolest thing about this place imo. We all go through so much in this process, and professionalism is very much expected of us. However, PCOM-GA seemed to set a double standard in this regard. I would still go here, I do believe they prepare competent physicians. It was really the intangibles that PCOM-GA was lacking." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"The wording of the emails sent out by the admissions staff is truly unlike anything I've ever seen from a professional institution. Abrasive language and disclaimers stating that the staff won't entertain phone calls regarding receipt of materials is simply baffling, given the fact that PCOM-GA requires a more than standard fee for processing the secondary application submission. That said, I was impressed by location of the facilities and the friendliness of the students. A net-positive impression. But I do think they could drastically improve their appeal with minimal effort." Report Response
