How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"The students and faculty all have GLOWING things to say about the school. Seriously I've never heard anyone say anything negative about it. Everyone seems to love it and current and former students all give it their highest recommendation. Seemingly great clinical experiences and a surprisingly diverse and competitive match list." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities, specifically the city hospitals, they are old and in a bad part of town and haven't been updated or renovated in decades. I'm not a big fan of the city of Memphis (I lived in Memphis even before applying to med school) but it is a place with a high need for physicians and medical care. There also isn't as big an emphasis on research as many other medical schools I interviewed at, with many students outright saying that they don't emphasize it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing, this was my lowest stress interview" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Memphis isn't as dangerous or unsafe as people seem to think, but the city and hospitals are old and dilapidated in places. If you get below the superficial though this is a great community where everyone seems really happy to be studying medicine and getting a great education. And in state tuition is cheap with many scholarships are available!" Report Response
