What impressed you negatively?

"The admissions presentation had connectivity issues and the moderator seems disinterested. One of my interviewers seemed to only ask questions to determine my credentials, not really to get to know me as a person. Many times I felt as I was just regurgitating information from my application. I was abruptly interrupted in the middle of my response to be "enlightened" that medicine is a calling, and not something someone pursues because they have the intellectual curiosity to do so. I had heavily implied that my life experiences made me align towards DO instead of MD as my future responsibility and calling, but I did not explicitly state that."

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Professionalism and enthusiasm go a long way. Everyone is human, but the goal of interviews and the admissions presentation is to entice future students to choose your school just as much as students are presenting themselves to entice your school to choose them."
