What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I didn't find the interview experience to be intimidating or grueling, as I had heard and read that they often are. I wish I would have anticipated the more relaxed and open invironment that is was. Don't count on that though, as I know they can still be tough, depending on who is interviewing at the time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview was in the morning, and took only 45 minutes. I didn't get the feeling that this was enough time for the interviewers to get a good feel for my background and interest in medicine, however, they moved through many questions...none of which were out of the ordinary. Then we went on a short tour given by a member of the admissions staff, which was nice and concise. Then we had a lunch where we ate with a few medical students and then one of the Deans came and answered any questions we had about the admissions process. Following him, people came from financial aid and culteral affairs to give us some information and answer any questions. Then I went to a medical school class, which was very interesting. The day was good and I left feeling excited about the school. " Report Response
