How did you prepare for the interview?

"I researched the school as much as I could online, I was hoping to hear more about the school on the tour, so I could get a feel for the community and campus and have some questions for the interviewers, but the interviews came first. I also looked here on this thread at previously asked questions, and reviewed my application." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The campus was beautiful, and the tight-knit community was impressive and desirable. The people on campus were extremely friendly, and the swipe access to the anatomy lab was nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers focused on questions which, even after the interview when there's no stress or pressure, I can't figure out if there was a right or wrong answer. I feel like the interview did not provide the admissions committee as accurate of a picture of me as I hoped they would have gotten; I feel like the interview did not really focus on my potential as a future physician or student. And for the questions about me, and not about my opinions, I wish there would have been at least some structure and less vagueness. I felt I was unable to discuss all the good things about me, and felt like the conversation tended to focus on my weaknesses (but perhaps this is their strategy- seeing how you react to stress and how you handle unideal situations!) Lastly, with regards to the actual campus, the SIM lab was small and didn't seem updated." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known the schedule, like knowing that the interview was first thing in the morning. I also wish I had studied the school more beforehand, because without seeing the campus I was unable to ask my questions to the interviewers." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This campus is definitely unique; it's a small-community-feel, but actually one of the largest classes offered for medical school. The area is extremely rural, and they focus a lot on that area of medicine. At the end of the day, I feel like my interview did not reflect me well as a potential medical student/professional, but the campus was nice. Lastly, something I thought was a little different was that at LMU-DCOM, you do not receive your white coat until your second year." Report Response
