"So far so good. Keep using email to update people. Although I think phone calls to those who are accepted is a nice personal touch, so keep doing that."
"Compared to the other schools I have applied to, the interview was much more high stress and cold. I understand that it is unnecessary to ask behavioral based questions but I think the process could have been friendlier. It is very reassuring a huge selling point when the school seems friendly."
"I would have liked a tour of the Raptor Center, but overall the interview was really nicely planned out."
"Free parking for out-of-state applicants who took the time to travel to Minnesota."
"Adjust the schedule so that folks who have the 'right after lunch' interview slot aren't trying to fit the tour and lunch both into one hour. I didn't want to eat because I didn't really want to rush from eating into the interview with lettuce stuck between my teeth. :) (That said, I skipped lunch and after my interview someone from admissions saw me headed out and stopped me and asked if I had had a chance to eat; so they took care of the problem!)."
"E-mail admissions notifications would be better, but I understand the need to send out official forms with the letters."

"Are you a big-picture person or a details person? (Different than anything I'd seen listed here, although easy enough to answer.)"
"Do you have any pets at home?"
"Tell us about a time in which you gained trust in a person, and how you gained that trust."
"Tell us about a goal that you didn't achieve. (I couldn't think of one but managed to say that when I usually set goals I do everything I can to achieve them. Also, in essence, since I learned from all my experiences, I don't think of any goal I set as a failure.)"

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
SDN Ranking identifies how SDN members perceive the quality of a school relative to other schools of the same type (e.g., other Medical Schools, other Dental schools, etc.). Schools are ranked from 1, perceived as much worse than other schools, to 5, perceived as much better than other schools.×
