"What do you like the least about UK?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN Interview Feedback and reread over my secondary essays the day of the interview. Reading over my essays was super helpful, since a lot of what they'll ask you about/tell you about ties into the questions they asked on secondaries. (eg, they talked about UK's 8-12 class schedule with a lot of unstructured time)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities were great. The MIS (Minimally Invasive Surgery) Lab was incredible, even though I'm not terribly interested in surgery." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The campus tour was pretty scattered. We were broken up into two groups, so I didn't have a chance to talk to some of the other interviewees like I would have liked." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I would have done more research about the school. I knew a fair amount, but having more directed questions for my interviewer I think would have been helpful, like asking about going to a particular site for an away rotation, rather than just away rotations in general." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I was very impressed. More than I thought I would be. The lecture halls are fairly standard, but the hospital looked great and the MIS Lab looked like a great asset." Report Response
