How did you prepare for the interview?

"Looked through the website. Did the recorded video interview. Ate breakfast. Everything was situational/ethical without any interviewer knowing anything about your application so there wasn't a need to review what I said in my essays/experiences." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Class is only 4 hours a day. Most students study for 4 hours and attend/watch lectures for 4 hours and go home. Most of them treat school like a 9-5 job for the most part unless they have finals or other big tests to prepare for. Lots of students go hiking/campling or do fun stuff on the weekends. The school/life balance seems really good at the U. I saw some classmates from undergrad and they seemed to be just as happy and stressed as they were during undergrad. The school interviews exactly 4 times as many applicants as they have seats (they put applicants in different pools depending on in-state/OOS/Idaho and keep the 4:1 ratio in each pool) so getting an interview is a big step and statistically means you only have to beat 3 people to get an acceptance, even if you're OOS. The education building where classes/labs are held is brand new and the school of medicine is supposed to be torn down and replaced within a couple years. Lots of collaboration within the classes, not a lot of cut-throat competition." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The anatomy lab is in a separate building that is not right next to the others. It was not part of the tour because it was too far away. In-state tuition is still 39k+. They don't "give" you a laptop. You get an iPad air for the first 2 years then you have to give it back and they give you an iPad mini for clinical years." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There's some snacks & water when you arrive but nothing breakfast-oriented, so eat before you arrive. It takes about 10 minutes from parking at the hospital to walk to the admissions office - and that's without getting lost. The directions they send to applicants are pretty good though."
