What impressed you positively?

"Brody is actually a really good school, despite what you may have heard. Of course you can't go to a better school if you are interested in primary care, but if your interests change during school you can match anywhere so long as you do well. Also, this school is just about the cheapest in the country." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"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." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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."
