How did you prepare for the interview?

"I looked on SDN, the school's mission statement, and website; I wrote down questions and answered them in my head so I would have some sort of idea what my opinions were so they seemed at least somewhat well-informed." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The faculty seemed to care about the students and have personal relationships with them. The class sizes are small and the kids who go there really seem to care about each other." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cafeteria was tiny, the gym was tiny, the SIM room didn't have orthopedic simulations. Also, it has taken over three weeks to hear back a decision- they promised they'd send out decision letters in two weeks." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"In the beginning, they sit you down at a computer and have you write responses to mini prompts, which are then used in your interview. Also, when trying to think about potential answers to potential questions, I didn't know at the time it was closed-file, and the interviewer had never seen my file before. They didn't even know my major, hobbies, activities, etc. except those I talked about in my earlier written prompt. ALSO, the interview process lasted until about 4:00, when they told us it would be done by 2:00; a lot of people had to be rushed because they had flights for 4:00 or soon after." Report Response

"It was an okay school, nothing super special, BUT I would be happy to go here. The location is nice, although expensive, and the small class size is very nice. Everyone was friendly, and I could see most people being happy there." Report Response
