What impressed you positively?

"The tour was given by two second year students who did an outstanding job of informing me about the school and what it's like to be a medical student at Wayne State. They both really love it there and said they turned down schools like U of M because they like the way Wayne educates its students. The tour and the campus are fabulous. The Detroit Medical Center is huge and beautifull. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The teaching facilities are not state of the art but they serve their purpose. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"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?" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"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. " Report Response
