What impressed you positively?

"Completely no stress interview and was very relaxed.... almost to relaxed. Seemed interested in what you had to say, and seemed very impressed with responses. Great board scores, cheap living, cheap tuition, and bigger city than i thought. Great athletic facility (just wish the med builiding was as welcoming)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Though I like the fact closed interviews hide the numbers, the 4 questions or so they ask really doesn't get to know you as a person and you feel like you end up just repeated your AACOMAS, which they obviously look at. Definitely wasn't an interaction or conversation, just question and answer session bc they just ask then write down your answer. Personally I would rather have a challenging questions about that really tells about you, and not the mickey-mouse ones that took 15 mins. Just overall felt like I didn't get much out of it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing, glad I knew the questions, but they were very simiple so would have done fine without." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The nonchalant nature of the interview was the exact opposite of the sterile/rigid environment the high-school like school with lecture halls gives off, which I thought was kind of odd. The building is nicer and bigger than I originally thought. The OMM classroom is sweet, and the lecture room isn't bad but just the feel of the school gives a wierd vibe due to the lack of color/places to sit and talk with students. Like I said it feels kind of like a mental institution mixed with a jail. The activity center is really cool and very very nice and would look forward to use it. The student panel was great, and the PBL mock session were both very very helpful (though I just can't do the PBL w/o real cadavers). School was a top choice, but moved down on the list after visit."
