What was the most difficult question?

"The format at UCC is different from most schools. Interviewees meet at the admissions office (we were 7 in total). From there we went to the library with our two interviewers. In a small group study room we had to work together in a bioethics case study while they monitored our group skills. Later these same professors were the interviewers. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read about the school from SDN and UCC's website. I also practiced a mock-interview with my Spanish teacher since I am a native English speaker. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is beautiful, great location in Bayamon, great resources available. Overall the school-complex was much larger than Ponce, but that was perhaps because it is associated with a hospital. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing, it was nice." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It is tricky to find the school. Even once I got to the building I had to ask six people where the admissions office was. Get there early and find the right place. Then you can always go relax and eat a little breakfast at the small restaurant by the "umbrellas". You'll see the umbrellas and know what I'm talking about. " Report Response
