What impressed you negatively?

"The student tourguides acted too much like salesmen. I don't think they were honest. There is no dress code, so the students looked really unprofessional. They did not look medical students. The school is basically in a converted warehouse. The division between the first and second year classrooms is one of those dividers that you find in a banquet hall that folds into the wall. The white coat ceremony is held in the OMM room after they move all the OMM tables out of the room. The library is tiny. The faculty member that interviewed me was border-line rude and definitely abrasive. There is not cafeteria, just a bunch of tables and chairs. We were informed that we would only have one interviewer instead of the normal two because all other faculty members were busy. How you do not have faculty members available to interview applicants when you know they are coming is beyond me. No financial aid information was provided in our interview bag. I was actually informed that financial aid information was not even discussed until orientation. I got the overall feeling that PCOM-GA is disorganized. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That if your MCAT is <25, do not even bother even coming to the interview because you will not be accepted. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer actually ended my interview early because he could not get off of my MCAT score. I was not treated respectfully in the interview. I got a weird feeling about this place overall. It didn't feel like a medical school to me. It definitely was not the right place for me. My experience is only one experience of many. Maybe others have had and will have a better experience than I did." Report Response
