Read recent happenings in the science/health field. Read about UMDNJ-SOM and its good points. Thought about who I was. Thought about what I genuinely wanted to know about UMDNJ-SOM from the interviewer." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Very welcoming students. Healthy atmosphere. Noncompetitive nature among the students. Students seemed knowledgeable and intelligent. Superior facilities (e.g. design, classrooms, labs, resources). I really do like the buildings in general. Teachers/doctors and additional help are readily available. Small class size. The Problem-Based Learning Curriculum is very interesting. Nice campus, peaceful with everything one would ever need at/near the campus (e.g. hospital, doctors, advice). Heard that they are improving the traditional curriculum for next year."
