"From what I heard, the faculty are very approachable and are readily available for questions. This with the small class size makes for a great atmosphere and a comfortable learning environment which is important if you are going to spend the next 4 years of your life around the same people. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The open door policy of the faculty and the resources available to the students, such as the summer program before and after your first year of med school. Also I like all the growth that is going on with the medical achool and ECU as a whole." More from this Member | Report Response

When we were started our tour everyone was coming out of anatomy, having fun with one other, joking around about the smell, it seemed like a nice relaxed atmoshpere (for med school!)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very low stress interviews, great campus and modern facilities. The cafeteria food was good too, and the interview group only included me and one other student." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students themselves seemed to have a genuine sense of family among them. The learning environment was open and modern, not cut-throat like some other schools." More from this Member | Report Response

"The proximity of Pitt County Hospital to the medical school (literally next door), the one-on-one exit interview with Dr. Peden, the food in the cafeteria (no joke-you can eat a full meal for next to nothing and there is a wide variety of foods and salad bar. Students receive a discount.) There is abundant affordable housing very close to the medical school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school has highly dedicated students and faculty that seem to be hard matched elsewhere. Also they were not pushing the rural medicine as hard as I expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was interviewed by a 3rd year medical student and a faculty member. Bother were very nice and my interviews were relaxed. I didn't feel pressured at all. The two students who gave the tour were VERY informative and nice. I also spoke with other students in the building during my interview and they were unable to give me any reasons not to attend the school. The tuition is WONDERFUL" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students couldn't stop saying enough good things about the program. Technology is well advanced for a primary care focused school. Close proximity to Hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities need an upgrade" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"very uninterested in research..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most of the students lacked enthusiasm for Greenville, and it's not hard to see why. There is not much going on there (which is good in some ways; no distractions) and it is very far from any other major cities (1.5 hrs from Raleigh, the closest "big" city/cultural hub). I think Brody would be more prestigious simply if it was located in another town and/or attached to a different university. Personally, I like Greenville because it is a small city and it is dirt cheap. Both of my interviews seemed kind of rushed because there were other interviewees waiting in line. I felt as though I didn't get a chance to ask a lot of questions or gracefully wrap up my interview. Finally, the tour could have been a little more in-depth; the students kept referring to a cool library and parts of the hospital we didn't get to see. These are all minor gripes though!"

"Greenville is kind of a small town...but it's not that bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are not overly nice, wish we would have had more enthusiastic students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Med students are essentially on the same floor of the same building all the time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, the tour. Done by M1's who were just there for the free food. Not overly enthusiastic about ECU but they may have been stressed b/c their first anatomy test was upcoming and it was only their fourth week of school. . ." More from this Member | Report Response

"- too rural - not a P/F grading system - students not all happy being there - hard to find things to do there - hard to get clinical exposure first year - facilities are really old looking (although not old in age)" More from this Member | Report Response

"There are only 2 main classrooms for year 1 and 2." More from this Member | Report Response

"Other ppl interviewing not is same place of life as me. by this i mean kind of older and married. I want to be with ppl that are in my stage of life for social reasons. I felt I had to defend going out of state for undergrad and that I wasn't too stuck up for ECU. Which I am not other wise I wouldn't have applied. Also it is a small city, but I am sick of living in a big city and am ready for change" More from this Member | Report Response

"The Brody building itself is a little bit dingy (but the hospital is nice)" More from this Member | Report Response

"facilities are not modern/up to date, especially certain floors of brody" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, maybe having all classes in same room...but I don't think that's really a big deal." More from this Member | Report Response

"Greenville seems to be a bit boring. I tried to find some places to hang out off campus, but couldn't. I won't have much down time during med school anyway, but a little excitement in the town would be nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really, people always say the location but Greenville is not that bad... I mean its not your NYC or DC but its a nice chill anda relax place, not very busy and not a lot of traffic, perfect place for a medical student if you ask me..." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing. Most people would say Greenville. But hey, you are going to be studying in medical school. So who cares if Greenville has nothing to do? " More from this Member | Report Response

"The second interviewer did not seem interested in interviewing me. The first question he asked was what is my gpa and mcat score. I felt as though he had sized me up from my gpa and mcat score alone. He would cut me off while I was in the middle of answering the questions. Kinda rude and condescending. I did not feel welcomed by the school (with the exception of the students)." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing off the top of my head" More from this Member | Report Response

"The only thing I didnt like was the fact that 90% of classes will be held in the same room." More from this Member | Report Response

"Greenville is out in the middle of nowhere and there didn't seem to be very much in the town. At least if you went to medical school there, you would have no distractions whatsoever. When I asked one of my tour guides what people do around here she said, "Uhhh... there's a bowling alley. There's a movie theater too I think..."" More from this Member | Report Response

"I don't like Greenville too much, but its close enough to the beach to make easy weekend trips, and close enough to raleigh/chapel hill for the same. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, but greenville not the best place to live" More from this Member | Report Response

"the tour- it was short " More from this Member | Report Response

"How dingy and dark the facilities seem. The school is stuck on the side of the hospital, and all your lectures are held in one classroom." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"the isolation of greenville and ECU. the lack of room to consider options outside of NC or primary care post-med school. also, the students were really nice and incredibly happy but my tour was lead by married students, which was difficult to relate to as a possible peer" More from this Member | Report Response

"the facilities seemed kind of cramped with the large hospital " More from this Member | Report Response

"small town" More from this Member | Report Response

"the facilities seemed cramped and many things were outdated. the rooms where all M1 and M2s have class are so small. we didn't get a tour of the hospital. even though i know ecu has a strong mission, i didn't get a feel for that at the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"when i defended my answers, one of my interviewers acted like i was getting too excited. maybe this place is for people more laid back than i am. " More from this Member | Report Response

"See my summary of the experience for a complete run-down." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the students giving the tour was spouting statistics that I know aren't true ("over 50% of the students go into family medicine"), so I felt I had to take everything he said with a grain of salt. The other student that gave us a tour/escorted us to lunch was very friendly and helpful, though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Greenville is in the middle of nowhere... you're going to have a lot of time to study!" More from this Member | Report Response

" none" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing." More from this Member | Report Response

"The closed file interviews were very difficult for me to feel like I was making a connection since every quetion seemed like the kind of cocktail party chit chat you engage in with strangers to fill time: "So where did you grow up?...What was your major" and so on."

"Small town - I had known this about Greenville, but it is one of the school's main drawbacks" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was kind of a letdown because there was nothing to it. All the classes except lab are held in the same room so all they could really show us was the locker room, the one classroom and the room where exams are held." More from this Member | Report Response

"facilities" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was not able to get a rejection interview with Dr.Peden before the interview and I knew I was going to be asked about my reapplicant status, so I felt like I was going into the interview a little blind" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"Greenville is really in the middle of nowhere. However I knew that coming into the interview. The tour was very brief and not very descriptive. It could be more extensive. Also both the student tour guides has very similar backgrounds. I would have like to talk to some people with different perspectives i.e. older students, students from more diverse upbringing."

"small classroom, parking" More from this Member | Report Response

"The first interviewer was rather dry and I didn't feel like I had a chance to establish a repiore b/c he didn't give me a lot to go on. There was a lot of silence in-between his asking a question and then taking notes on my responses." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's Greenville. The tour was rather abbreviated and I think they could have shown us a lot more. If adcoms read this, get the tour guides to show us more! (Meaning anatomy lab, cancer center etc!). -"Closed File" that conveniently has my gpa on it (PFFFT!). It would have been nice if they had at least thrown my MCAT on there too to balance it out.

"Knowledge of class, second interviewer" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was almost too casual. Will the tourguides were very nice, I felt they were rather unprofessional. Greenville is rather far from the city life too." More from this Member | Report Response

"More about my interviewers" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not to worry about getting there late. VERY relaxed and intimate (only 6 of us). My second interviewer was a student." More from this Member | Report Response

"That it only takes ~1hr and 45 minutes to get to Greenville from the Raleigh/Durham area. Also, it is important to the admissions office that you are NEITHER excessively early or late. They want you showing up precisely 5-10 minutes before your interview day is scheduled to start." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just relax... prepare thoroughly, but relax. No hard questions at all." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really...a little of waiting around." More from this Member | Report Response

"the availability of the professors for clarification and extra help is incredible." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ignore the urban legends. You don't have to prostrate yourself and chant 'Primary Care' to get in. Mainly, ECU wants students that are committed to providing medical care in the state, in whatever facet you choose. If you, like 85% of those interviewing, don't know what you want to pursue yet, be honest and tell them. They'll thank you for it." More from this Member | Report Response

"They have a rolling admissions process which means that some of us might not find out if we are accepted or rejected until May." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was taken aback to see how they have treated me so nicely.. I didn't expect that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviews are semi-open, but rarely do the interviewers open their envelope with our information" More from this Member | Report Response

"That most acceptances don't find out until April or May. And there's no feasible airport option in town (the airport there would have cost me $400 extra)." More from this Member | Report Response

"That there were many other hotels near the School and that Greenville was actually good looking--not a dump at all like some students here have suggested. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Construction was happening all around the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"i didn't know how the closed-file interview would go. it wasn't bad, just a little repetitive. what i did appreciate was how their system really helps ECU choose a class that will fit its personality and mission statement, which i think is important for NC" More from this Member | Report Response

"greenville is completely in the middle of nowhere" More from this Member | Report Response

"both interviews were closed file. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much, since this was my 2nd time interviewing at Brody" More from this Member | Report Response

"mapquest gave me a wrong direction." More from this Member | Report Response

"Second interview in as many years, and went there for a meeting with Dr. Peden this summer, I was pretty familiar with everything." More from this Member | Report Response

"Lots of physicians in the adjoining hospital do lectures and presentations on their specialities. It sounded really interesting and a great opportunity to get to know the physicians in the hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"I made the mistake of letting it slip during my interview that my husband's profession requires he work in a large city. In my post-rejection follow-up interview I was reminded that living in an already medically overserved city "does not fit the mission of Brody." Also, being a relative newbie to NC, I was deemed a flight risk. Before your interview say this ten times: Underserved, primary care, North Carolina." More from this Member | Report Response

"Many students at Brody have worked dilligently to get into medical school and for several it has been a multi-year process to achieve this goal. This is both frightening and encouraging at the same time. This makes for Brody students to be some of the most dedicated. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were very relaxed. The interviewers seemed to just want to learn a bit more about you, not stress you out or trap you into messing up. It seemed like the other people that interviewed that day (with different interviewers) had the same experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Face it, it's a state school and they have to have "a class representative of the population of North Carolina." I'll leave you to fill in the blanks there. ;) Also they have sent out 72 acceptance letters already, leaving the other 3 people interviewing me with that "I've got a snowball's chance in hell of getting in" type of feeling. :P I know better though, since half of those letters will goto candidates who will inevitably goto UNC medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"That I may not know until the end of April since the committee may not meet again until then!!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Relax! The interviewers are not trying to make your interview difficult. Don't let your lack of enthusiasm for Greenville discourage you, as Brody is an excellent school, as evidenced with Step 1 scores that are just as good as UNC's or Wake Forest's and match lists that illustrates Brody will give you any tools you need to do walk whatever medical career path you choose."

This was my first interview so I was extremely nervous when I arrived but the friendliness of the admissions staff and my fellow interviewees helped me to relax a little. The interviews were great...far less scary than I imagined. The atmosphere is really laid back and low stress. It seemed more like having a conversation with two cool strangers instead of having someone drill me with random questions. As long as you know what’s in your app and why you want to be a doc & why ECU, you'll be fine. This was a great first interview experience!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviews were super laid back and conversational--a lot less stressful than I imagined. Overall, I was far more impressed by Brody than I thought I would be.

"This was my second time at ECU. Last year, I didn't accept me because they didn't feel that I'd stay in North Carolina just because I went to undergraduate somewhere else. So this time, I was hoping that they wouldn't pick on me abt where I spent my undergraduate years that much. I hope that they realize how much I am dedicated to stay in the state of NC. My interviewers were a professor and a 3rd year medical student. I wish that I had gotten a chance to meet Dr. James Peden at the end of my visit but he was busy.

"I started off the day at 10:00 am in the admissions office. It was me and 2 other people. We started out by filling out a questionaire about what specialty we were interested in, and of course, unless you're stupid, you're going to put some kind of primary care/rural medicine as one of your top choices. Then I had two interviews, one-on-one, with faculty members. They are closed file, but both interviewers kept slipping in questions that would've been answered if they'd just looked at my file. "What's your GPA? What's your major? What was your MCAT score?" I didn't really understand that, unless they're trying to double check or something. Both of them also asked me what other schools I was applying to and sending seconardies to. Of course, after we got through all of the questions they had planned to ask me, the tone of the interview became much more conversational and we just talked about whatever. Then after the interviews we had a short tour of the med school and ate lunch in the cafeteria." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was very pleased to see the atmosphere of a school like ecu. I had always had a negative idea of ecu as a school, but most of that was from the average undergrad experience and shouldn't be used to describe the type of medical school ECU really is. It really seems to be a positive, non-competitive, enriching place. We started in the office of admissions (there were only two of us that day having interviews) and they gave us envelopes with the interviewer and his office number. Each interview was very relaxed, mostly asking questions of family, background, etc. There were many of the typical questions (strength, weaknesses, etc) but they were asked in a very non-threatening way which alleviated some of the stress of the typical med school interview."

"My experience was definitely more relaxed this year than last year. I felt more at ease with the interviews (2 professors) than last year.

"the interview and tour were both positive experiences, overall. however, i was very disappointed by the fact that i did not receive a single communcation from them (that i did not initiate) in the three months between my interview and my acceptance. for a school that prides itself on personal attention, i found communication skills to be lacking. note: keep calling, or you will have no clue what is going on.

"The interview process was relatively painless. I think I was more nervous than those around me since this was my first time applying to Brody and my first interview anywhere. My first interview was truly closed-file. He started off by asking me where I went to school, my grades, my hometown, where my family lived, what I did for fun, etc. My second interview was definitely more positive (a 4th year) since we shared similar interests and similar backgrounds. This made the time fly by. I have seen other's imput on the school making it seem like a ghetto and not that much to do around here. But if you are in med school, wouldn't you rather not have constant distracting activities so you can focus on school? Greenville is not that far from just about anything you would want to do (Raleigh two hours away, beach two hours away, mountains 5 hours away and DC about 4 hours away). In my opinion, this is as good a location as any for med school. The hospital is nice and it is growing at the moment. I like the fact that they are building a new heart center to serve as a research and clinical facility. From talking with the tour guides, the faculty are eager to help and want to see you succeed. The hospital cafeteria is terrific (you can eat for almost nothing there and open 24 hrs.). My second interviewer had mentioned that even up to the 4th year, many students still remain close friends and plan to stay in contact even after school. The one thing that you need to keep in mind is that Brody is focused on doctors who want to practice in underserved areas. This is not a secret from anybody that has read the mission of Brody. Just something to keep in mind when applying and interviewing." More from this Member | Report Response

"My experience was very positive and I feel that I have a good chance but I also saw that about 50% of the students that got into the program last year were reapplicants and that is disscouraging for first time applicants.

"When I left for my ECU interview, I had only been admitted to Tulane (obviously a sketchy choice at this point in time). I wanted to do well at ECU to at least have a school on the plate that wasn't destroyed by a hurricane in the last year. I got the phone call from UNC while I was at the hotel preparing for my ECU interview the next day. UNC was my 1st choice, so I felt I could relax on the interview prep. I still wanted to do well, though, because it's always nice to have choices in the end. I have one friend who attended ECU as an undergrad. He hated it so much he transferred out, and when I told him I was going there for my interview, he offered one piece of advice: "Make sure you lock your hotel door." That didn't bode well. He was right - I took a mini-tour of Greenville by car the night before, and the city is not friendly. It's mostly rural, and the population is seemingly composed entirely of poor minorities. I don't mean to sound elitist, but I felt like I had been dropped in the middle of Harlem, only without the benefits of a large city like NYC. The hospital is similarly disappointing. While the hospital itself is relatively modern, it is surrounded by a whole lot of nothing. It's like the Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz... a big shiny new thing emerging from a rural countryside, and looking totally out of place. From there it got worse... My first interviewer was lovely, I really liked her. She was a young psychology PhD, and made me feel very comfortable. My second interviewer was AWFUL. He was the stereotypical old man concerned primarily with my summary numbers (MCAT, GPA, SAT, etc.) than with my personality. He spent most of my hour with him trying to convince me that ECU was probably the wrong place to be if I wanted to specialize, completely ignoring the other evidence that ECU might be right for me. He sat far away from me, making the situation even more uncomfortable. Each interviewer receives an envelope with your basic biographical info; he didn't even bother opening it when I handed it to him, and therefore most of the questions he asked me were those he could have answered by spending 30 seconds reading the summary sheet. The facilities, while fairly modern, would be hellish to endure. EVERY SINGLE FIRST-YEAR CLASS IS HELD IN THE SAME SMALL ROOM. That means, for an entire year, you'll be spending about 8 hours a day in the same room. Talk about Cabin Fever! The same is true for 2nd-year students. They have a different room, but all their classes are still held in a single room. The school feels like an afterthought to the hospital - it's a big hospital building, and the med school is simply dispersed throughout a number of rooms in the hospital. There's no dedicated med school building, no "college campus" atmosphere around the hospital, or anything else you see at most other med schools. The tour guide seemed neutral, and was evasive when I asked if there was anything she disliked about Brody. The "tour" was pretty much useless; since all classes are held in the same room, she simply showed us that room for a few minutes. Then we went to lunch, which required walking through the hospital to the cafeteria, but she never gave any info about the hospital at ALL. Everything I know about Pitt County Memorial Hospital I learned while trying to find its address on Google. The cafeteria food was OK, but the Admissions Office only gives you a $5 waiver, so be prepared to spend some of your own cash if you want a drink, yogurt, whatever. It's the only lunch facility in the building, and our tour guide said it gets old after a semester. There are no other restaurants within walking distance of the hospital. Overall I was wholly unimpressed with Brody. The interviews were bland due to their closed-file nature, the facilities are not good, and the students are unenthusiastic. ECU would be a last-resort option for me, and given that over 50% of their students are re-applicants, it would seem that most of the students are people who couldn't manage to get in anywhere the first time around. Not the place for me." More from this Member | Report Response

We spent the meal discussing how their first year had gone and what types of things they did to imporve their application and be accepted at Brody.

"This is the second time I interviewed at this school. I found myself more relaxed and confident this time (better qualifications and more experience helped). The more time I spend at ECU the more it grows on you. Last year my tour guides were not friendly and left us in the cafeteria, making us find our way back to the admissions office. This year the interview group clicked with them and it was very relaxed and fun. Dr. Peden has to be one of the best Dean of Admissions I have met so far. He is honest but with a touch of compassion so as to let you know where you stand and how things are. Also, although their reputation for primary care is their bread and butter, ECU has emerged as a great med school for placement of physicians in EM and regular family practice, and it shows by the compassion of the students and faculty.

"Great interview time with my second interview. I had a good experience last year, but this year was much better. I had a more relaxed and confident attitude, and I hope it showed.

I liked the philosophy because that way the interviewer starts off as clean slate without forming any opinions before meeting the candidate. Overall it was a good experience. Tour guides were also trying to give a good feel about the school instead of trying to make a hard sell. I also liked that they provided lunch in the hospital cafeteria, where we would be having lunch as med students rather than providing fancy boxed lunch. Dr Peden made the whole process less stressful by making light of situation about how him and Dr. Hoole (UNC) are at odds because they compete for the same candidates ... and how that was not a problem with him and Dr. Armstrong (Duke) .... ofcourse he was kidding :-)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Well I came into this interview knowing that I had been accepted at some other medical schools. Basically in both interviews I laid the gauntlet down and said "Hey! Wake up! This 4th time is your final chance, either take me now or lose me forever." I don't recommend this approach in your interview of course but I felt invigorated doing so. I think my interviewers sort of appreciated the fact that I was up front with them and not afraid to speak my mind. After all, your interviews are about getting to know you as a person. Beforehand, I was told in an exit interview by Dr. Peden that my 6 in the bio section of the MCAT wasn't going to cut it ( Hey, it's a valid statement!). I retook the MCAT and got it up 3 points. They seemed to like that and take notice that I was willing to work for it. The only bad part is waiting for them to make up their minds afterwards. The committee meets about 3-4 weeks after your interview. Inevitably you will be waiting till May to receive word from them. Granted I already plunked down 3000 bucks on reserving my spots in the other schools, but since ECU is my first choice, I was hoping I would get some type of confirmation sooner. Oh yeah, I know for a fact that Dr. Peden also reads this site alot to gain feedback on the interview process. I would just like to say that my lunch was good this time around and that even though I had 7 bucks of food on my plate (the healthy food is expensive hehe), they accepted my 5 dollar interview ticket as a "Paid in Full." So if you are reading, know you get a big Richie thumbs up for that this year. ;) In summary, the odds are heavily stacked against you at ECU due to 68 slots ( 4 of those are already spoken for no matter what) and over 780 applicants. They get alot of applicants, it's a slow process overall from secondary to interview to acknowlegement of the final verdict. However, everyone at ECU is nice, friendly and approachable. The tour is good and the students seem to like it. When I asked a random girl studying in the first year classroom, she replied "Getting in is the worst part, after you get in you'll love it here." Just keep that in mind and never give up." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is my 3rd time applying to Brody so I was pretty familiar with the staff and the facilities. This year they served us lunch too (which is surprisingly good) :) Both interviews are closed file and they are basically looking to get to know you. You will spend the majority of your time discussing your experiences and how they relate to medicine. Normally they ask me what I am going to do if I am not accepted. This year they never asked me that, rather they asked why I was so tenacious in my pursuit of a medical career. The majority of the class are reapplicants so I felt very good about my interviews this time around. Both people I interviewed with were quality individuals and I never once felt uncomfortable. This is a great school. Many people say that there is nothing to do in Greenville but it's really just like Wilmington 5 years ago. In conclusion, compared to other schools you'll interview at, you'll find the most comfortable interview environment here." More from this Member | Report Response

This was my 3rd time applying so she wanted to know why I was so dedicated. My second interview was with a phd and we just talked about my hobbies. Im in grad school now and he wanted to know if I was sure I didnt want to stay in research. Overall a very positive experience.
