How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN. MCW website. Talked to students at the Thursday night social and my host." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The TREMENDOUS community and public health outreach opportunities--this is a school that fosters students who care and start making a difference early on. The student-run Saturday clinic is a prime example. The interconnected buildings keep you out of the cold. The STAR center. Top-ranked hospital and children's hospital. **We find out 10 days after the interview.**" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The curriculum that has 3-4 classes per block (instead of focusing on one thing at a time), and lots of class time per day (8am to potentially mid/late afternoon). Little clinical experience for 1st and 2nd years. The dinky basement gym. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You are totally done by 4:25pm, if you have to make earlier flight plans in order to avoid sleeping in an airport somewhere (as I had to), as early as 6:15 or 6:30 is fine, you'll make it if you take a cab. Admissions just tell you to plan for leaving MCW at 5pm just to give you lots of time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Attend the social and host program, they are very helpful in getting to hear from the students and getting your questions about the school answered. Everyone very friendly and helpful--the students, interviewers, admissions, and my fellow interviewees. The interviews are short (30 minutes) so some felt their interviewers were only there to ask specific questions and they were to give direct answers and not a flowing conversation, but mine were nice and cared more about the conversation than specific questions.
