What impressed you negatively?

"Both of my interviewers basically had sticks up their asses and no personality. A doctor in the area and M3 student interviewed me and I asked the M3 if she saw a specific movie and condescendingly replied "Well as a medical student, I don't have time to watch movies...". Additionally, we stood around for 30 minutes after our hospital tour for some current students to grab us for a tour of the hospital building but they never showed up and this poor M1 noticed us and gave the tour last minute (and since we lost all that time, it was very rushed). Some students also had to wait 2 hours for their interview after the financial aid seminar because instead of interviewing everyone at the same time, they do 3 separate rounds of interviews. The school did not provide an opportunity to give feedback on the interview day either and there is not a gym at the school." Report Response

"Be more present during the interview day. We arrived at the building and a security guard told us where to go and the students had to pick a place to wait until someone showed up. We also waited around for a student to give us a tour. Provide someone to stay with us all day in case mishaps or questions arise." Report Response
