"SDN" More from this Member | Report Response

"General questions and practicing responses" More from this Member | Report Response

"Mock interviews were moderately helpful at straightening out the tell me about yourself/why detroit, but the rest of the questions were a bit unpredictable.

I also went through the SDN thread and paid a lot of attention to the few comments posted by current students.

"Medical student interview" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students were open and honest" More from this Member | Report Response

"Friendly medical students who were open to answering any question. The tour of Detroit was definitely the best part of the day. The interviews were pretty well organized for such a packed day. I felt that MMI was really well made and not too stressful. MMI interviewers were so nice and chatted with you instead of letting you sit in awkward silence after you finish." More from this Member | Report Response

"City of Detroit" More from this Member | Report Response

"How laid back everyone was" More from this Member | Report Response

"The INSANE amount of hospitals within walking distance!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview and tour gave you a realistic idea about the school. They don't try to sugar coat or pull out the "good china" when you visit like other schools. I prefer it this way. I don't want a school to impress me during the interview to realize it was an illusion when I enroll." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students I met were OUTSTANDING people. Seems to be a high level of clinical experience and engagement in underserved communities in Detroit. Co-curricular programs that incorporate service learning, lectures, seminars, etc. Really sophisticated recording system for recording classes/lectures. Seems like there's lots of scholarship money available." More from this Member | Report Response

"The community seemed tight-knit. I asked my interviewer why he/she stayed at Wayne for his/her career and the response was the people. Lectures are optional and streamed, so no need to attend most class." More from this Member | Report Response

"School respects your time. You don't have attend an ALL DAY interview program. It's like a real job interview which I found to be refreshing. Not every applicant will appreciate this attitude, but I did." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wayne State doesn't try to sell themselves on you. Your interview day is largely what you make of it. Every portion besides the interview itself is optional. You can go sit in on a class if you want to, and no one will really know/care if you decide you don't want to do that. Same with the tour. There is free time plugged into the day for you to just explore it on your own. You can walk around the school and talk to people, check out the cafe, or simply sit there and unwind if you feel like it. I think this is a very sensible approach because it lets the applicant define his/her experience, but I could see how that wouldn't appeal to everyone." More from this Member | Report Response

Detroit is the only major (~1 million people) metro area that ONLY has 1 medical school. This offers students chances to train at 11+ hospitals in the immediate area free from competition. The interview was very laid back. The person interviewing me was a psychiatrist but I didn't feel like she was over-analyzing me or playing the "tell me about your childhood" game.

The lunch was honestly not great, but since we are given a home base to leave bags in during the tours/interviews you can definitely bring a snack of your own. The adcom people who came in to answer questions at the end were not super transparent but were really encouraging. Also, the students talked a bit about the huge class size and that’s something I don’t think I would like that much." More from this Member | Report Response

"Kinda old and dingy after seeing UCF's state of the art newer facilities. weren't able to see any of the study rooms or go inside gross anat labs like at UCF and see a lot of things on the tour that we were able to see in more depth at UCF. But on the bright side they offered to let me sit in on a lecture to see how class is there. I felt too awkward to do it but went down to the library instead and chilled there before my interview."

"The tour was optional and the day was not really organized. It was just an interview, not really an "interview day."

"it seems like the students are a pretty mixed crowd from those who you wonder why they were let in, to those who are serious about medicine. seems like you need to be careful who you hang around. also no one was terribly enthusiastic about being there. also, seems like there is a lack of study areas, ie the library is out of commission, the lab rooms are white and ''lab''-y, though i'm sure you get used to studying there after a while." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities. The area. The student body. The hospital. The lack of a research program for non-PhD students. Did I mention the facilities? To put it simply, the only thing that is attractive about Wayne is the instate tuition and the online lectures. Everything is? Well, it stinks." More from this Member | Report Response

"when i interviewed, i got the impression that wsu is really for people who want to live at home/live independently in a city and go to school...i was really unimpressed with the fact that students attend lecture less than half the time and choose to stream them from the internet (in the words of the tour guide) ''because they would much rather sleep and get up in the afternoon.'' there seems to be no camaraderie within the class, there is an utter lack of ''student life.'' if you're working, have kids, or are married...this would be the school for you but if not why would you want to give up the amazing college-like experience medical schools like UMich can give you? there's also little research at this school and little encouragement to do it (i.e. nothing is built into the program). even if you don't want to do research, i think the research background to a school is fundamental to the quality of teaching. why does a school like duke tend to focus less on textbooks? b/c the professors draw from their research and cutting edge basic science to teach you material. thus, people who graduate from a place like duke are taught to be the leaders in their fields...and they truly know what it means to be that. that being said, i was impressed w/ wsu's clinical program...and their students get into a wide range of specialties. all this goes to show that it DOES matter where you go for medical school...these schools are incredibly different (in their own right) but can produce very different types of physicians have different goals."

(As opposed to the systems based approach) One of the tour guides didn't really seem excited about being a student there, and said a few bad things about the school. The computers were still using CRTs, which made the wonder how old they were." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was a little late (10-15 min), but it was no big deal" More from this Member | Report Response

"The long list of directions that were given to me to get to my interviewer's office.

"The locale." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour was boring. It was snowing and about 30 degrees C. Contract problems between the University Physician Group, Detroit Medical Center, and WSU. The class size is going to be 290. :( The tuition is also $45 grand for out-of-state students." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not many students come to class." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities of Scott Hall were much less than impressive - kinda dark and depressing." More from this Member | Report Response

"I felt like the school was good, but I'm not sure if I would pick it other the other school I've been accepted to. It just seemed like people were there but not very excited about anything really. I was hoping to get financial aid information there, but you have to go back on a Saturday for a presentation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most students don't live around campus, not much campus life. The tour was horrible since it was only the tour guide's 2nd tour. He didn't know much and said nothing about the hospital network." More from this Member | Report Response

"the gym was really small" More from this Member | Report Response

"The activities were absent, no welcome meeting, no introductions, etc. Also, the school has plans to increase the 1st year class to 300! Funny how no one mentioned that, found out from a 4th year student I talked to in the hall." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had to wait 2 hours in between the tour and my interview! They only have one tour at noon for both the morning and afternoon interviewers. I had to ask to see the library and hospitals, but they gladly showed them to us. It's in Detroit, so not visually appealing or entirely safe." More from this Member | Report Response

"Scott Hall is old with almost no windows. Since I'm doing MD/Ph.D, some of the research seemed a bit lacking. That's not to say all of it was, but there seemed to be fewer quality labs pertaining to research that I wanted to do. As for the living area, Detroit is, well Detroit. Money for the Super Bowl has helped renovate the downtown. Hardly any of the outlying areas have gotten money though, so they are still pretty downtrodden. Also, while a lot of places tried to sell themselves, Wayne seemed to be more content just letting you decide." More from this Member | Report Response

"Detroit is a bit run down. The school's location isn't unsafe, but not exactly where you would want to live either. Since Detroit does not have much of a mass transit system, most students live in the suburbs and drive in. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Students seem rather stressed out, facilities are average or a little below average, and the anatomy labs and many of the rec rooms were dreary and underground. Also, practically everyone's in-state, so I may feel a bit left out." More from this Member | Report Response

"I used to live in Detroit and coming back I thought Detroit would be a dump. But it's actually gotten better - abandoned buildings are starting to be town down. That being said...the area right around WSU is not safe and you can't park your car there. The health care system in Detroit is struggling big time and the only successful hospital is Beaumont (a top 20 hospital in the entire nation). But the Detroit area hospitals like Sinai Grace, Hutzel, Detroit Receiving, St. Johns, Harper, are all struggling and it's really sad because Detroit needs good health care in that area. Plus Wayne State is upping their school size to 300, that sure is big!!!" More from this Member | Report Response

I was expecting them to sell the school to me, but they didn't try. They figured I was too good for the school or something. Hell, I would go there if it meant getting to go to med school at all! They shouldn't have had that attitude. I sure didn't. The interviewer was falling asleep and forgot some of my answers and had me repeat them!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That they let in over 250 people. The interviewer told me flat out that they admit a lot of sub-par students that couldn't get into other places. The interviewer said that they do this knowing that some of these people will fail out or quit, and still others will not pass the boards. " More from this Member | Report Response

"City is abandoned and unsafe, both city and school aren't nice to look at and are old. Commuter school. Webcast lectures mean that sometimes only 15% show up.

"The only "negative" comment that I had was that at the tail end of my interview I felt rushed because the interviewer was trying to make sure I made it to the tour.

"The facilities were pretty run down. There were times when I felt like I was in prison while in the med school building. Also, Detroit Receiving is having serious financial problems, although this was not discussed by anyone. When you go, bring it up. Also, this was possibly the least informative of all the interviews I have gone on. I walked away knowing very little about the school because they do not give any presentations, my interviewer was a doctor so I couldnt waste her time asking a ton of questions, and the student tour guides focused on the dumbest issues like ID cards. Also, with so many kids per class, it seemed a little like a doctor factory." More from this Member | Report Response

"I am from New York City, so I had to fly in to Detroit, and there is no public transportation here, so I had to spend a lot of money in cab fares to my hotel and then to the school from the hotel, and the surrounding areas of the med school are not the best neighborhoods, but most of the really good med schools are in really bad neighborhoods, like hopkins and columbia, and penn, so wayne State fits right in :). " More from this Member | Report Response

"The teaching facilities are not state of the art but they serve their purpose. " More from this Member | Report Response

"location; I stayed at a Days Inn in downtown Detroit a couple of miles from the school; kinda creepy; heard about bad/scary things happening there, although taxi driver said things're 75% better than they were 10 years ago" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing (well the library was really hot, but the AC was out)." More from this Member | Report Response

"The educational facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Multiple 30 minutes interviews: 1 faculty, 1, med student, 1 mmi. I thought it was just mmi with app questions thrown in." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't be nervous, they want you at their school!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The Faculty interviewer knows your application really, really well so you can talk about yourself without going into too much detail about what you did- they just want to have a conversation with you and may bring up random topics in order to do that, so just go with the flow. There are a few ethical/scenario questions weaved into the student interview, which is very structured." More from this Member | Report Response

"To relax" More from this Member | Report Response

"Detroit is nicer than I was expecting." More from this Member | Report Response

"More about MMIs, don't worry about their's though because they're pretty normal situations. Nothing crazy." More from this Member | Report Response

"to relax and definitely know your application. they will ask you specifics about different activities" More from this Member | Report Response

"That I could have relaxed before the interview. It was so laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"They are very willing to accomodate interview dates. I mentioned some travel logistics issues I had had, and the admissions staff said that they wished I had called and told them because they would have been more than willing to adjust the timing to help me out." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was NOT directly affiliated with the medical school (worked with undergraduates). If I had known this was a possibility, I would have prepared more questions about living in Detroit, Wayne State in general, etc. rather than very specific questions about the medical school programs." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really...it's really laid back and nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"School is huge. 290 students per class." More from this Member | Report Response

"If I'd known ahead of time about the freedom I'd have to explore, I may have tried to reach out to a current student beforehand to see if I could meet with them or if they would recommend checking out XYZ before leaving (i.e. something not on the student tour that would be worthwhile to see). But in retrospect, I do think I used my free time effectively and was happy with what I found. It also allowed me to talk to some of the other interviewees which is something I personally like doing." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing: there were no surprises." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviewer would have a high bias" More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't be super nervous about this one. It is incredibly laid back and just a conversation about your primary materials." More from this Member | Report Response

"That this interview wasn't as easy going as others said it would be....be prepared! It's not a blow off not hard but not easy" More from this Member | Report Response

"Really easy interview! Told me straight up that he just wanted to make sure I was a real person matching my application" More from this Member | Report Response

"That they did not accept me the first time around because of my poor performance in the pre-reqs" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing, its very laid back" More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really. kinda was prepared due to people who interviewed before me telling me about hwo it was." More from this Member | Report Response

"The parking situation was somewhat frustrating." More from this Member | Report Response

"How laid back the interview would be!" More from this Member | Report Response

"generally they do not ask any ethical questions " More from this Member | Report Response

"That they do not ask ethical questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think I was well prepared for everything that occurred during the interview, so nothing!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just wish I had done a little more research on the school. Since my interview was before the tour, I didn't have a great sense of what the school was like, and had a hard time with the "Why Wayne?" question." More from this Member | Report Response

"Don't forget your parking pass! (Oops!) If you do, there is free parking about a block past the school along the street (Canfield). There is also meter parking just outside the school along the street. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That it was gonna be snowing so hard and would take me an hour to get somewhere that should have taken me 22 minutes (according to Mapquest)!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I stressed out about this interview way too much beforehand. It was really laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"I expected the interview to be like a conversation in which I would be asked questions that came up for my interviewer as he read my primary and secondary questions and that follow-up questions would be asked based on my answers. Instead, I was asked questions that were pretty much already answered by my primary and secondary application. It made me feel like I didn't have an opportunity to elaborate much on things not explicitly discussed in my application. Also, be prepared to gauge how long or short your interviewer expects you to answer his/her questions. Honestly, that was the hardest part of the interview for me and this was my first interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The cafeteria has bad food, but there is a Biggby's Coffee in the hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"How expensive the cab ride is for crossing the border!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Detroit is a ghost town, don't bother to allow extra time to see the city like I did if you are interviewing with someone in hospitals, they may be late and getting paged constantly during your interview (admissions office, please note this is not cool) " More from this Member | Report Response

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

"that a cab ride from DTW airport to Wayne State would cost $35...not ~$20 like it says on your interview invite" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, was ready" More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interviewer would stress my high school experience so much." More from this Member | Report Response

"The the parking pass they mail you is for the FLAT LOT right next to the TALL PARKING STRUCTURE. Both places take the card but only the flat lot lets you in. It's really easy to accidentally drive into the parking structure and once you do, you have to back all the way out. So keep your eyes open!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The GPS directions were bad, I showed up a couple minutes late--very bad!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That we'd have two hours to kill in between the interview and the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"How few of the rotations are at the DMC." More from this Member | Report Response

"umm.. wear comfortable shoes?" More from this Member | Report Response

"That you should read the letter to find where to go for the interview. Don't read their directions on the website." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the OB/Gyn and Ortho departments have walked out of the DMC, and that there is talk of the DMC disaffiliating from Wayne (rumor only)" More from this Member | Report Response

"that DMC and Wayne State may have their residency program placed under probation if they dont sort out their differences" More from this Member | Report Response

"Detroit is dangerous. The city practically has no night life. Even though I dont think I will be hitting the clubs to often during medical school. The city isnt the best one in America. Also suprised that I could communte from Windsor to Wayne State. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, but be prepared to leave Scott Hall b/c your interview could be in another building. " More from this Member | Report Response

"That an early interview means that I'll have a couple hours of sitting around before the tour after the interview was over... and that I'd be getting lunch on the tour so I wouldnt have paid for it beforehand... DOH!" More from this Member | Report Response

"That driving in Detroit is a pain" More from this Member | Report Response

"About the Republic of Czech (my interviewer was from there)" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I schedule my interview earlier because Wayne State only tells you are accepted once a month." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview doesn't take place at the location where you check in so give yourself extra time to walk over to your interviewers office" More from this Member | Report Response

"The main school building is being renovated." More from this Member | Report Response

"hmmm, nothing comes to mind" More from this Member | Report Response

"There's construction going on at the admissions building- other than that, pretty straightforward." More from this Member | Report Response

"Downtown Detroit isn't the best place to stay. Maybe it has had a renewal in prep for the Super Bowl but when I interviewed most people said to stay away from that area and yet that is where my hotel was!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. I guess it would be better to know who is interviewing you ahead of time so you can research them, but they do not allow this..." More from this Member | Report Response

"The class size for 2006 is going to be 290 students. Also, even after the interview, your stats are still looked at (MCAT, GPA) rather than being graded by interview alone." More from this Member | Report Response

"The school as increased its class size by 100 students for the 2006 entering class. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Michigan doesn't let out-of-state students apply for Michigan state residency; you're stuck with that awlful out-of-state tuition for all 4 years. Michigan looks and feels like a state going bankrupt, so it isn't surprising." More from this Member | Report Response

"That if I get in I'll be with 299 other students." More from this Member | Report Response

"just how relaxed it was." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wayne is affiliate with a bunch of hospitals and has a lot of clinical opportunities" More from this Member | Report Response

"I shouldn't have been nervous! There was really nothing to worry about. There were no difficult questions during the interview, and the interviewer seemed like she just wanted to get to know me better. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was pretty well prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"What I stated above, that they flat out allow sub-par students. I kind of knew this ahead of time because they would have to in order to get 250 students. But hearing that it's true from the inside really turned me off. " More from this Member | Report Response

"that the stress I felt for interviewing was nothing more than my ego; you are who you are, 'preparing' or 'interviews' will not change that; accept your life and move forward spontaneously with integrity to truly do the best you can in any situation" More from this Member | Report Response

"How soon I would hear back from the school! Decisions are handed down once a month for all applicants including those who interviewed during the last cycle. They usually occur on Wednesdays, the 2004-2005 dates are: Sep 29, 2004 (Early Decision Only) Oct 20 Nov 17 Dec 15 Jan 26, 2005 Feb 23 Mar 23 Apr 27 If you interview on say November 1st you hear whether or not you got in on the 17th, if you get waitlisted a new decision is made on every 'decision day' after that, ergo on Dec 15 they choose accept, reject, waitlist again...and so on. Wayne is the largest medical school in America so the turnover on the waitlist is high, don't feel bad if you get on the waitlist...seriously." More from this Member | Report Response

"pretty much what is in the negatives" More from this Member | Report Response

"How stress-free the interview would be! I spent too much energy stressing about it! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Both positive & negative points." More from this Member | Report Response

"No surprises." More from this Member | Report Response

"Can't think of anything-- just lots of construction on 94 and one-way streets." More from this Member | Report Response

"ummmmmmm...how I would be ripped off by the taxi driver. I'm just glad I mapquested where I had to go or I'd never get there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Must drink water prior to interview. Mouth... so dry." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview at this school in particular was completely stress free. Oh yeah, I-75 southbound was a complete mess. I live 1/2 hour away and it took me an hour and a half to get there." More from this Member | Report Response

"Getting the dean of admissions at WSU as the interviewer is a terrible sign. Everyone I know he interviewed did not get accepted." More from this Member | Report Response

"That there will sometimes be an hour-long wait before the tour begins" More from this Member | Report Response

"I have friends at the school so there were no surprises. " More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really...I already knew it would be a pretty low-stress and conversational interview from people I've talked to" More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything closes early." More from this Member | Report Response

"I read how relaxed and stress-free the interview was, but didn't really understand how much so until I was in my interview. It is totally stress free - the way it should be if the purpose of the interview is to get to know more about the candidate as a person." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really...i was pretty familiar with the school before I interviewed there." More from this Member | Report Response

"School starts begining of August :-( (short summer)" More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour is pretty useless. Just walk around on your own." More from this Member | Report Response

"the students here love it and enjoy sharing their thoughts/experiences here with you" More from this Member | Report Response

"very big class...over 200 people enrolled per year" More from this Member | Report Response

"How relaxing the day was" More from this Member | Report Response

"that taxi from airport costs big-bucks" More from this Member | Report Response

"Not too much opportunity for research experience" More from this Member | Report Response

"The public transportation system in Detroit is not very developed. The only ways to get from the aiport to the school is by taking a taxi or renting a car. Neither is cheap... (expect about $40 one way for taxi)!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Who the interviewer was. They dont tell you ahead of time. No big deal, though." More from this Member | Report Response

"That the interview would be so easy" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing comes to mind..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Most of the people who apply early decision are from Wayne State, but that does not negativly affect your chances of getting in." More from this Member | Report Response

"i had 2.5 hours to sit around before the tour and after my interview... i got to sit in on a lecture though so that was nice" More from this Member | Report Response

"MANY, MANY reasons why I wanted to go to Wayne... they asked me over and over!" More from this Member | Report Response

"How easy going the interview was going to be." More from this Member | Report Response

"About 60% of the students granted an interview end up getting an offer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"More about the curriculum." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was longer that i had thought (not that I had other plans), I was just surprised... although i think the length might have been anomylous." More from this Member | Report Response

"The tour really is optional and very informal." More from this Member | Report Response

"The amount of exposure you get from being in Detroit, they have great hospitals right there that are all connected by underground tunnels, which is cool. Also Detroit Receiving Hospital doesn't turn away people who are uninsured so you really see a lot of cool cases, like end-stage diabetes, etc." More from this Member | Report Response

"that my interviewer was basically going to go down the list of my ECs and ask questions for the firt 20 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

"Dress warmly in Michigan." More from this Member | Report Response

"Allow yourself extra travel time to the interview. Detroit seems to have a lot of road construction." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very conversational. She had a sheet of paper she was asking questions from and writing notes. Where to go. I made one wrong turn and burned up some time. I ended up being five minutes late but my interviewer really didn't seem to mind. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The history of wayne state university. It's something that came up in the interview and it correlates to the school's mission." More from this Member | Report Response

"That between my interview (from 9-10 AM) and the tour (at noon), there was NOTHING scheduled for me to do. I had to just sit there for two hours." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known about the whole transportation system not existing in Detroit" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish I had known how truly low stress the interview is. I had read from this website and from interviewfeedback.com (which is down now, sadly enough) that the interview is nothing to stress over. I had trouble sleeping last night but the interview went great and she actually told me that i did very well. Thats better than saying I suck, right?" More from this Member | Report Response

"The airport shuttle business closed down a year ago so I ended up getting a taxi to the school--cost $49 going there, and $35 coming back" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school is doing alot of renovation, so the school is getting a need face lift." More from this Member | Report Response

"How deeply personal the interviewer was going to get." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I would have liked to know more about the school. I have no idea if I would be a good fit for them. Too much time was devoted to the city of Detroit. That's nice but I'm from OOS and I'm going to medical school not moving to Detroit for a career. They interview a lot and have a huge class size 300 students. It's pass/fail and volunteering is required and so is early clinical exposure but very little specifics were given about the program. I really wasn't sure why they asked me to come." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some students discussed a cheating problem the school had and it was interesting how they are dealing with it (but they seemed that the problem is gone)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I feel like they got several opportunities to see me perform when faced with questions (and in a quite standardized way.) I don’t feel that I know too much more about the school than I did before going in, but with the sheer amount of people interviewing there, I can understand why it can’t be as in depth and sales-pitchy as other schools. I would still be happy to go there and they know that lol" More from this Member | Report Response

"Detroit is a really cool city, so give it a fair chance! You will be surprised" More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish that there was a presentation and that we could have learned more about the school and less about Detroit" More from this Member | Report Response

"overall a great experience and i hope to be accepted" More from this Member | Report Response

"The clinical exposure you can get at Wayne is awesome (from what I heard)." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was definitely impressed by this school, more than I had hoped to be. The only doubt I have moving forward is the very high OOS tuition. They definitely don't try to shock and awe you during the interview day. They're more of a "here is what we are and what we've got - take it or leave it" style, but the interviewer was very nice and the students were very forthcoming. I actually appreciate this, personally...it's a bit more of a 'real' look." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was open file, but I had a chance to talk about my path as though my interviewer knew nothing about me. Be prepared to highlight things you feel are important to your story." More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't expect to be super impressed, but I LOVED it." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a solid in-state school and I would love to have the opportunity to attend this place!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Teaching hospitals are all on one big block. Love the proximity to the medical school. Easy to shadow doctors." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very LOW stress so don't panic and just enjoy the day and time you are given" More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a great school Detroit is also improving and has its own unique charm." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer obviously had no intention of being fair or impartial. She disagreed with most of my comments and went out of her way to belittle my under graduate experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great interview experience overall." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Very strong traditional school, full cadaver dissection, lots of opportunities to volunteer in clinics right from the start!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Just know your app and stuff related to it since that's all they really asked about" More from this Member | Report Response

"go on the student tour!" More from this Member | Report Response

"this was a VERY basic interview: she simply flipped through my AMCAS app and asked questions about it" More from this Member | Report Response

"Seems like a really great school, and everyone I met there was really cool and easy-going." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school for clinical medicine but not as big on research. Auditoriums are more outdated as are other facilities. But still its ok cuz the school is decent for clinical training." More from this Member | Report Response

"At WSU, just like any other school, how the interview goes not only depends on you, but mostly the interviewer. Some of them will ask dumb questions but others will ask more meaningful questions. Unfortunately, you don't know the name of the interviewer until you get there." More from this Member | Report Response

"School seemed decent but I didn't really like Detroit." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is definitely my top choice! It's an excellent school with amazing opportunities and wonderful people!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I think just because Wayne State does not have its own hospital, but works with about 4-5 awesome hospitals around it, its not rated that high by USNews. I think if you look at the broader picture, Wayne State would be an awesome place to go for med school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a very low stress environment and a good experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"its a great school if you want clinical experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Very laid back interview--more like a directed conversation. Bring a bottle of water because your mouth will dry out. Lasted almost 2 hours." More from this Member | Report Response

"This school can offer me a lot as a student, and I feel like my interviewer knew my application well and was able to hint at activities, research opportunities etc. that matched my profile. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was pretty uptight and tense and therefore really turned me off. I thought that he asked some questionable questions about ethics, and seemed to criticize me when I disagreed with his viewpoint (even though I was mostly very partial and very respectful of all viewpoints)" More from this Member | Report Response

"loved it even more than I expected I would" More from this Member | Report Response

"Amazing school, awesome hospitals, and the interview is a relaxed day. Good luck at your interview and with the whole application! Pack your own lunch--or run over to the Detroit Receiving hospital (just a few steps from the school) and they have subway and and coffee shop! " More from this Member | Report Response

"Know your application very well. Be enthusiastic, as they dislike applicants that are subdued and boring. Be (gracefully) aggressive in selling yourself. Don't say anything stupid and you'll be a-ok." More from this Member | Report Response

"Also had a really nice and helpful student to stay with. Contacted him via the Student Stay over website." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good school, the interview is SUPER relaxed! Seriously, don't even worry about it at all, just be talkative and have a conversation with the person. GOOD LUCK!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Indeed, the interview was laid-back and was not stressful at all. However, it felt like the interviewer wasn't really gaining anything through talking to me since the entire interview seemed like a reiteration of my entire application. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was good, however at times I felt that the interviewer didn't probe enough and did not seem to interested in me expanding on certain answers. I found it difficult to describe myself in greater depth than I had in me application. The school seems great, especially if your a commuter student. The large size has its pros and cons." More from this Member | Report Response

"They truly do make you feel comfortable. Even though my inteview wasn't structured as I expected, my interviewer was warm and wasn't intimidating." More from this Member | Report Response

"I left with mixed feelings..." More from this Member | Report Response

"great school for clinical training, not so much for research, they're looking for students heavily involved in the community The interview proceeded in a predictable chronological format of life experiences-very low stress " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was literally a conversation. We talked for an hour and ten minutes and it still felt like we barely even started. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was basically just an hour conversation about everything on my AMCAS. They just want to get to know you better and verify that you are what your application says." More from this Member | Report Response

"They aren't joking when they say the goal is not to stress you out but to get to know you better. And you should take advantage of that, because your interviewer is going to be your advocate with the admissions committee." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I had a good experience here, I really liked the school and the students, and the clinical aspect is seemingly unbeatable. " More from this Member | Report Response

"very relaxed interview, no difficult or random question" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was impressed beyond belief. I didn't know much about the program or facilities going in, but after the interview and tour, there was no doubt in my mind that, if accepted, this would be one of my new top choices. Interview is very laid back, so don't worry. It really depends on who you get. I don't think they force their interviewers to have any format because mine literally went top to bottom on my application materials and that was it. Just a conversation for 45 minutes. Very relaxing. Good luck!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewer flipped through my application, asked some general questions. Not particularly hard or entertaining. I felt like a number on a list so I tried to make things more interesting. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Wayne's a great school. Yes, it is in Detroit and no, Detroit is not a great city. However, Wayne being in Detroit enables you to receive the best clinical education the state can offer. Literally, instead of reading up on cases like you would at MSUCHM/MSUCOM, you'll actually get to work on the cases at Wayne. Also, don't fret about the negative impressions people have left on SDN. It's mostly because 1) Wayne is in Detroit and 2) the interview itself isn't the best. However, the school itself is great; Wayne consistently turns out the state's best interns year after year because of the hands-on experience you get. One final note, don't let the fact that Wayne is in Detroit deter you from going there. Most students live in fun areas outside of Detroit, like Royal Oak, where they hang out and go to bars together for fun after exams." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was an old weeny who couldn't hold a conversation for very long. He was unimpressed and disinterested with everything on my application, which is odd because I got into UMich and NYU already, so someone must find it impressive. He also misunderstood my research, asking me to tell him about amino acids. Excuse me? You want me to give you a lecture on amino acids and what they are, or do you want to know about my prion research? He also looked at my EC's and goes, ''well, this fits the mold of the prep type applicant.'' What is that supposed to mean? These are just two examples of many that show my interviewer was not quite right in the head. However, beyond the dull interview, I left Detroit feeling very underwhelmed about the school itself. Having already been to four other great schools, Wayne is by far the least impressive school I have seen to date. The facilities are from 60s, the adjacent hospital is old, the medical library is unusable, there is no research establishment to help non-PhD students obtain grants for research (it's all do it yourself unlike other schools that have programs to set you up with researchers and grant money), the student life is non-existent, it's like a community college where no one knows anyone, instead they all just stream lectures online and show up for exams. Also, you don't necessarily stay in Detroit to get the great clinical exposure everyone raves about, instead you're subject to a lottery that can ship you to hospitals such as Oakwood (gasp!). It's not all bad though. Wayne does have great clinical exposure 3rd and 4th years and they do have an impressive match list, so they must be doing something right. In summary, I would only choose Wayne for the instate tuition and nothing else. You can get similar clinical training at other institutions without all the baggage that comes with going to school a commuter school in Detroit. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was not happy w/ this school. I know that I'm not going to be coming here...there's a big difference between this school and the other schools i've interviewed at. it makes me appreciate the unique programs top 20 schools have that much more. read below for the type of person WSU is made for... the interview was chill. my interviewer was very nice and it was obvious to me that he was a sharp and excellent clinician. however, the questions he asked me were kind of the ''duh, did you read my application...it says it right there'' type of questions. he did the whole ''eye-burn'' thing very well as an interviewer...you know, when an interviewer locks eyes with you to make you feel uncomfortable and maintains eye contact even during moments of silence LOL. I will not be surprised if I am rejected from this school as it was glaringly obvious during the course of the interview that it was not a fit for me and that i wouldn't come here if i were accepted b/c i want much more from my medical school experience that wayne can't offer me. wayne's for a different type of person/student (read below)."

The tour took us around a sizeable portion of campus and through part of one of the hospitals, but didn't really show anything. Also, they only give you a $5 coupon for lunch...which does not quite cover it. Overall a decent experience though." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had an elderly interviewer, who was friendly but I really felt like I needed to carry the interview forward, as he didn't really prompt me much. He asked me to explain my research, and I still don't think he understood it after I explained it. He was very brief, maybe 20 minutes before he asked me if I had any questions. I had a few and then we just talked about random things for about 30 minutes." More from this Member | Report Response

Nit-picked about every aspect of my AMCAS for 40 minutes, talked about family, my mom's passing due to cancer, and the essay on diversity I wrote for them (which had some strong statements she wanted to ask about). We then had some really good convos about understaffing at the DMC, Psych-related issues for kids (some from my shadowing experience), and our opinions on Press-Gainey surveys (that was a fun one).

Tour (students loved the school and were proud to be learning medicine at Wayne. Both loved the oppurtunities to work with the underserved and to take advantage of the oppurtunities at the hospital.) Overall, I was pleasantly shocked. I went to Detroit thinking that I wasn't going to like it becaues I am not the biggest fan of Detroit, but I really ended up like the school and all.

It was more of a confirmation of some items that were of interest in the application such as research, medical/clinical experiences, and current activities (since I was a non-trad). The interviewer himself provided an overview at how the first two years of medical at WSU would be like. " More from this Member | Report Response

They also informed me that Wayne State only extends offers once a month and that I wouldn't find out anything for at least 3 weeks:-( My interview was really relaxed. The interviewer just filpped through my file and asked me questions based on what he saw. We often went off on tangents and I think that he may have talked just as much as I did. Afterwards, I went back to the admissions office and waited with other students for the tour, which was cool. We had two tour guides so we could ask plenty of questions (an there was one gentleman who really took advantage). We sat down for a mediocre lunch and then I left.

"Overall I had a really good experience and felt that I got the entire "Detroit/WSU" experience. Med students were all extremely nice; my host took me to a frat-type party of M2 students; I was surprised that med students here partied down like regular undergrads. My student tour guide had an adorable Midwest accent and I was rapidly developing a crush on her. WSU seems like an excellent place if you are interested primarily in the clinical aspect of medicine (as I am), and their ER trauma experience is probably unmatched. However, the school (and the state in general) do have a run down feel, like Rivendell in LOTR where the best days were behind them. It's difficult to explain, there's just a slightly depressing feel to the entire school/city. That said, I think I'd be just fine going there if I don't get into somewhere better." More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience was good. Unlike many premeds, i can admit I was very nervous because it was my first interview (hence the stress level of 6). The questions were usually straight forward - the typical "why wayne" and "why medicine", and amcas/activities questions. However, the interviewer told me I was lacking in clinical experience even though I had 3 semesters of volunteering..I did not completely agree but I didn't argue. The interview was fairly conversational, although the interviewer fired out question after question for most of it, as expected. I ended up being accepted, so don't worry if they grill you like that." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was quite good. My interviewer spent the first 10 minutes (10!) going over the interview process, with me asking questions during that time.

"Normally you only are interviewed by one person, but my interviewer was training someone so I ended up having two. (The trainee didn't say much so it was like having only one interviewer.) They asked me EVERY question imaginable, from my activities in high school, to what I do for fun, to what I want to be doing 10 years from now.

The interviewer also allowed me to sit in on his small group discussion about endocrinology before my tour. " More from this Member | Report Response

Then went over my AAMC application asking me about my experiences, classes etc. I was born and raised in a different country, so we talked about that a little bit. She asked me about my family and some events that I had mentioned in my application. Overall, I enjoyed talking to her. It was truely an attempt to get to know me better.

"I arrived 15 minutes early. The secretary in the admissions office told me who I was going to be interviewing with and his area, as well as giving me various paperworks that provided information on financial aid, a survey, and an explanation of the acceptance process. He showed up promptly at noon and we walked down the hall to a conference room. He immediately helped put me at ease by saying this was low-stress, that they just wanted to know more about my character. Several times he mentioned that he wanted to know how I think (he was a psychiatrist) and one time asked me if the interview was stressful or not so far. There were no far out questions or anything. He was mostly interested in my motivation and experience to become a doctor, why Wayne State, and some of the sociological and behavioral aspects of my life--such as dealing with stress, relationships with family, high school characteristics, etc. The interview mostly went in that order, too. He seemed to be far less interested in the activities that I've pursued but more into why I pursued them and why they might be meaningful to me. There were several activities that are very different from normal applicants that we did not even discuss, which I was surprised about. He did not mention anything about my personal statement nor the two essays that I wrote for the secondary application nor any of the authors of my letters of recommendation. Overall, I think he could have done a better job interviewing me. One might think that is my fault, but certainly the interviewee cannot go topic roaming nor can the interviewer ask mediocre questions and expect grandiose, enlightening responses."

"I liked the fact that you were not required to hang around the whole day. Most schools will have you show up at 8 or 9 in the morning even if your interview isn't until 10 or 11. Then they cram 10-30 nervous applicants into their waiting room to sweat it out for hours. WSU was not like that. There were only 8 applicants, and the student leading the tour said that this was the biggest tour group that he'd ever led. I was instructed to show up at the time of my interview, so there was not waiting around. Overall, the day was very low-stress and relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"Day started at 10:00 exactly. There were 7 other interviewers. My interview was pretty laid back and get-to-know you kind of stuff.

Then the tour was given by students and then we all sat down to eat lunch and chat a bit more about school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Just talked about my extracurricular activites in high school and college. Very relaxed and nice interviewer, seemed like a very nice man. Made it a point that at Waybne I would be studying heavily and extracurricular work would be put to the side.

"The interviewers were really nice. I'm not sure I made it clear above--they interviewed me 2-on-1 (one was an M3, the other a professor), such that I was interviewed by a group (not that I was in a group of interviewees). The interview was focused on my reasons for pursuing medicine, which was fine, except that this lasted for 65 minutes and I did the majority of the talking. It was an adventure and a positive experience nonetheless." More from this Member | Report Response

"So I arrived fifteen minutes late due to the traffic and thought that I was going to get rejected for sure (luckily, this took a little stress off of the interview itself cause I figured I was already in the dog-house). I was escorted to my interviewer's office where I vehemently appologized for my tardiness, only to find out that she was a very sweet, understanding lady. The interview started with her asking the general "tell me about yourself" question, went on to some stuff about my research, my act/sat scores and highschool life(although i have no idea why), my family, etc. Most of the time we were just talking on topics that came about through tangents in the conversation. I had my friend show me around the campus so I did not go on the tour. All in all, the campus is pretty much what I expected. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview date was March 26. The interview was, in my opinion, great from the outset. All the questions that I expected she would ask were asked and I felt pretty good about my responses. She seemed impressed at not only my application (which she had in front of her) but also at my responses. You should always remember to shake hands firmly (trust me, they'll be looking for that). When it was my turn for an interview, she came up suddenly and shook my hand. Because I was surprised by her brief appearance, I didn't shake like I should have. However, I got another chance before I sat down in her office and man, I tell you, I grasped that hand pretty firmly. One more thing, the key is to be yourself and to be comfortable with yourself during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think it went pretty well...but then that's to be seen at the end of the month when I can find out some kind of decision. Like I said, it was actually pretty low-stress and the actual interview was basically like a conversation with the interviewer, which helped. Wayne seems like an excellent school (with all the hospitals around it), and I'd be happy to go there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"THe INterview was cool. The ONe on One type interveiw is very cool. PLan Ahead because contrary to popular belief, not alot happens in Detroit." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview experience was a positive one. The students appeared to be content. The facilities were up to par. I would definitely consider Wayne State a viable option." More from this Member | Report Response

"really good" More from this Member | Report Response

"I went on the school tour before my interview. It gave me a better idea of what the school was looking for in its candidates. My interviewer was very friendly. Told me in the beginning that her role was to be my advocate in the committee meetings. This really made me relax more, though I was still a bit nervous. We basically went through my application pointing out it's strengths and weaknesses giving me a chance to elaborate on each. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I was given directions to another building that held my interviewer's office. As stated, she was a very nice person (internal medicine doctor). She had nice things to say about the school, but lived outside Detroit. The conversation flowed easily and she was positive throughout." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was short and sweet. I interviewed with an admissions comitee member, like everybody else but my interviewer was from then psychiatry department which was a little intimidating at first. After I met him and we started talking,he was pretty easy going and asked the questions I had expected he would ask. My advice is bring something to do while you wait for the interviewer and the tour to begin. You also have a choice to skip the tour but don't because I think it's important to really see their academic facilities." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very good, relaxed" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer was interesting, she digressed numerous times. A very personable and laid back lady." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wayne is a good school, but a last choice due to its poor facilities and massive class size. There are over six students to a body in gross anatomy!" More from this Member | Report Response

"my interviewer did not seem that prepared. spent a long time reading through my application in front of me, but he was a great guy to talk to...the medical school is huge, and the underground tunnels were neat. " More from this Member | Report Response

"very straight forward..no ethical ?'s..?'s on my appliction and past experiences..why i wanted to go into medicine...basically, normal stuff that anyone applying to med school should know about themselves and medicine" More from this Member | Report Response

"I arrived at WSU about 1/2 hour before my scheduled interview time. I was greeted kindly by the admissions staff and given some materials to read over until the interview started. My interviewer arrived on time and directed me to an office within the admissions office. She was an internal medicine physician from a local hospital. The interview was more like a conversation than an actual interview. We discussed my research, what I did, what I like about it, etc. We discussed a few of my previous classes. She asked me which classes I found most difficult and asked me to elaborate on one class that I withdrew from (Why I had a W on my transcript). She also asked me how I did in high school, if I had considered any career other than medicine, and asked me to briefly elaborate on one of my secondary essays. Finally she asked my what I would like her to tell the admissions committe about me. Following the interview I had about two hours until the tour started. I got some coffee and sat in on a first year biochemistry lecture. Around noon we took a brief tour of the medical school and the surrounding hospitals and were treated to lunch at the cafeteria. The student tour leaders were very friendly and eager to answer all of our questions. My overall experience was very pleasant. Everyone at WSU was extremely nice and helpful. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very laidback and I was not nervous in the least bit. She was very much into starting the interview on a light note, very casual, then jumping into specifics. Know the details of your application because it seemed as though she was looking to trigger a blank, unprepared look on my face. When I did offer a prompt response, she was satisfied with whatever I said, and was ready to move quickly on. Overall, all I had to do was know myself, not extraneous current events. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had never been to Wayne and at first glance I was not very excited. I was the last interview of the day and that turned out to be a good thing since I got to tour and sit in on a lecture before my interview. The students made time to come up to me and tell me about Wayne (without my asking) and it made for a great experience. Their staff is very easy to talk with and it only took a week to find out I was excepted!" More from this Member | Report Response

"overall, the interview was phenomenal. Very friendly people and the interview style was a fair atempt to get to know you better." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer just looked over my AMCAS application and asked questions from my responses about classes, work experience, essays, etc. No "tough" questions about ethical questions or things like that. Very informal and relaxed. I wish they would have had more "pomp and circumstance" around the interview. Detroit is not an attractive city for most people (compared to Chicago or Philadelphia) and I think Wayne should have had a presentation about the opportunities that Detroit has to offer because they aren't very apparent. In other words they should have tried to sell their school more. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Extremely friendly, helpful staff and students." More from this Member | Report Response

"My student host was extremely helpful. She answered more questions for me than the student who led the tour, but both are very informative. The whole interview day consisted of a 30 min tour, lunch w/ current student, and a 60 min interview... nothing else. I need to ask about financial aid before they led me to their financial aid office. (btw, arranging rides with local cab company maybe cheaper.) " More from this Member | Report Response

"I am from the metro-Detroit area and Wayne is the school that almost every doctor in the area came from. Its undergrad and other grad programs dont have the best reputation and I had said for many years that Wayne would be the last place I would want to go to medical school. However, some of the things that are really appealing to me about the school are its rock-bottom price for in-state students, the fact I could live in the metro-Detroit area which I love, and that Wayne is affiliated with many of the hospitals to which I want to apply for a residency at. With these things considered I definitely cannot rule out that I will go there. (ohh I got accepted on oct. 15) Everyone I talk to in the health field says that wayne produces great doctors and i think i am going to make an appointment with the admissions office in hopes of getting some more of my questions answered. Good luck." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I was really impressed with Wayne and I am really excited to get my acceptance!" More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, this was a great experience. Not too stressful, and it didn't consume the entire day. The area was nice (I didn't know what to expect, given the urban location), and I was impressed with the accessibility of the local hospitals. My interviewer was very nice and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me as a person. The students were welcoming and seemed to enjoy being at Wayne." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was great, my interviewer was super nice and it was very relaxed, the neighborhood is downtown detroit but you go in knowing that so if you're not from the city be ready for it, and you go out knowing by what date the committee will either accept, reject, or waitlist you, only about 3 weeks for me" More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was great. The interviewer was friendly, but he didn't read my application before, so he was searching for relevant questions... I don't think we 'clicked', but he ranked me well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Loved the school, the students, and faculty/staff; like Detroit." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a wonderful experience. At first I was nervous, but after we got talking it was a breeze! Advice, always present with a firm handshake...I could tell they noticed that I had one." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was pretty easy. I didn't get asked any of the trickier questions that I was anticipating, such as bioethical questions, or health care concerns." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was an okay experience although I was impressed with the amount of diversity within the staff I was not impressed with the amount of diversity within the students. Also the facilities seem to crumble before your eyes. (very old)!" More from this Member | Report Response

"overall this interview experience was a positive one...i was not asked even one difficult question...he was extremely nice and easy going...just wanted to get to know me" More from this Member | Report Response

"The environment was congenial. Directions to the school were great (I had only been to the Wayne State campus once before). The interview was conversational and flowed very well. They really wanted to get to know me and my motivations to become a doctor." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good experience, and I got in. That's all that matters, i suppose." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer used a sheet of questions and took a lot of notes. After looking at sdn feedback, it seems like everyone gets pretty much the same list of questions as I was asked." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was great, the tour horrible. They need to reorganize their interview day, I was waiting around after my interview for the tour to start at 12, my interview was over at 11." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interviewer followed a list of questions and took lots of notes. The note taking hampered the flow of the interview which made me feel scattered. I also felt like I nevered finished a question thoroughly because I was interrupted." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, it was a good experience. Very low stress interview, which was very conversational. My interviewer was a clinician and not directly involved with medical education, so couldn't answer some of my questions regarding specifics about the curriculum. Other than that I enjoyed it." More from this Member | Report Response

"This is a great city school, and most of its faculty is committed to teaching and helping the underserved." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was a pretty bland interview day compared to other interviews, but wayne is a good school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a great experience. Before I went to the interview I wasn't really impressed by the school, but after the interview, this would definately be somewhere I would consider going." More from this Member | Report Response

"My heart really bleeds for Detroit - there is a certain poignancy in its urban decay and I really hope the best for this community. Wayne State seems to provide a very visceral medical school education...perfect for aspiring ER physicians or surgeons. The students and faculty were very down-to-earth and friendly. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This school provides a great clinical experience. I feel that if I attended Wayne I would be confident practicing hands-on medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not have a positive experience, and I usually interview well. After reading the other responses, I see that so much depends on the interviewer. My main complaint was that he was not particularly intersted in being there or in talking to me--at least that is the way he presented himself. It wasn't that the questions were hard, but I couldn't get him to interact. He just stood stone-faced and went on to the next question before I had even finished the one he had just asked. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was pretty relaxed and chatty, and I felt good about the woman I interviewed with. I got a really good impression of the school from the interviewer and the tour, and I'm very impressed with the school and its programs." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was very low stress. The students giving the tour were great and very open to answering all of our questions. Everyone I came across was very friendly and helpful. The interview itself wasn't really an interview, more of a conversation. The interviewer did a great job in telling me more about the atmosphere of the school, which is supportive and commited to community service. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a good day, my interviewer was really nice, very real, down to earth, actually the interview didn't seem like one, it seemed much more conversational. Don't stress it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Wayne is a great medical school, but unfortunately I only know that because I am from the area. The interview day did not present the school as well as it could, given the resources Wayne has to offer. The people were all great, but the only concrete info I recieved about Wayne occured in my interview. A wonderful school nonetheless, but talk to doctors from around the area and to medical students so that you can realize how great of a school it really is." More from this Member | Report Response

"good experience " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall I had a very pleasant experience at WSU, it was my most pleasant experience so far, and I liked the school very much. If accepted I think that I will surely come here, as it is my top choice so far." More from this Member | Report Response

"Good experience. I'm really looking forward to going to Wayne State and living in downtown Detroit. I will find out on May 20th. Thats the last decision date. The interview is really a conversation and she did a lot of the talking. The 55 minutes went by really fast. They really just want to know that I am a really person and that I have a strong desire to go to school there and that I will work hard once I'm in. " More from this Member | Report Response

"this was probably my best interview b/c it started off very conversational and then he went through my file very thoroughly so I felt like I had a chance to go over everything with my interviewer--explained the weak points in my application, and talked about the strong points; my interviewer was easy to talk to and very kind; the interview and interaction with student guides improved my view of the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was very relax and more like a conversation between potential peers. I felt the family atmosphere to be geniune at Wayne and DMC has alot to offer any aspiring physician. Be yourself and u will do fine during the interview." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Need a admission presentation with tuition cost, scholarships, clinical sites for 3&4th years. Financial aid. It was very unhelpful to watch a video of the Detroit children's choir. It was very unorganized. A lot of waiting. Very limited campus tour of just a few rooms in medical school, library. I would have liked to see more. Did not feel like I learned anything about the program that would make me want to move OOS to attend." More from this Member | Report Response

"To be more prepared, there was a lot of things that went wrong but the first person I met from the school made a comment how "early" I was and proceeded to disappear to find more folders since she only had 2. It of course, is not a big deal. But it makes interviewers feel like we spent so much time and effort to be there and we are excited and then there's not a lot of effort by the school and you cant help but think they really don't care."
