What are your general comments?

"UMC runs interviews of three students at a time. Each student arrives approximately 1 hour apart. You start with the Associate Dean for Admissions. He gives you a little intro, your schedule, and tells you how the interviews are used by the admissions committee. He is also your first interviewer. You then have two faculty interviewers who are members of the admissions committe. They can be either closed or open file--I had one of each. At 11:00, all three students gather and are taken to lunch by an M4 who then gives a tour and answers literally any question you can come up with. You end the day back in the Associate Dean's offices for another little Q&A. Interviewers were very laid back and seemed very interested in getting to know who the applicant is. All in all a pleasant experience." Report Response
