What impressed you positively?

"All of the admissions staff are extremely helpful. Interviews were laid back and extremely conversational. The students were very helpful and excited to be there, and their Dean's Ambassadors (tour guides) are all easy to talk to and will answer all questions honestly. Plus, there's a playground on the roof of the hospital...! Also, their students have some incredible opportunities to get involved in the community from day one." Report Response

"One of the interviewers was assigned the "mean interviewer role," but I could tell that he was uncomfortable asking difficult questions. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How conversational the interviews truly were. They are in rapid succession, too, so it can be somewhat overwhelming at first." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers only have your secondary and your AMCAS primary. They do not have any numbers, so you might have to use grades in some of your answer responses. I was asked about rebounding after an academic difficulty and realized I had to actually tell him how I fared in my next semesters because the interviewer simply did not know. Loved the school and the hospital. Hoping to hear some good news in the next few weeks." Report Response
