"The School of Community Medicine interview was a very positive experience." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers were not current on the correlation between MCAT area score and perfomance in medical school. One interviewer openly criticized the new curriculum (which was refreshing, but really?). The students were immature and conceited. They did nothing to make interviewees feel welcome, and were more concerned with gossiping about what was going on over the weekend. I had no interest in joining them in medical school when I was done with my day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I felt prepared for this interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I so badly wanted to go to school here before my interview. My parents went to school, residency, and fellowship here. I had a very strong link to the school - I grew up rollerblading down the hallways and hung out in my mom's mod every weekend. That link was totally severed on interview day. My interview experience was awful, and I just wanted to leave before the actual interview started. The students had a bad attitude and were more interested in impressing one another than anything else. It is safe to say that I went with another program." Report Response
