What impressed you negatively?

"A lot of med students I talked to here only got an interview invitation to the U. Not really a negative, but kind of weird..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"First interview was really short (25 min) and she seemed bored before we even sat down. The second interviewer spent most of the time talking about himself and his practice and had the assumption I was applying for a residency post. The admissions office had me come back another day for a replacement interview as a result. The new second interview went really long (almost an hour) and she pressed me on doctor shadowing, leadership, clinical experience. The interview as a whole seemed to go real well though."
