How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read other interview feedback sites. Knew my personal files and secondaries very very well. Than will pull most of the questions directly from stuff that was on your file." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The dean of admissions (dr haight) was very personal and candid about the school, which spoke miles about what kind of program they want to build. Also, the interviewers had one week to really go through the files. The interviewers really knew your files and it wasn't akward at all, in fact the interview (which was panel format) was actually quite fun." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish that the tour had been longer and more exhaustive. We really didn't get to see, in detail, all the buildings. Also, it would have been nice to meet more of the students and have time talk to them." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Traveling to/from/around California can be extremely expensive!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a great experience. I felt that many of the buildings weren't as asthetically pleasing as it could be, but the buildings that were remodeled were very nice. The anatomy lab was the best smelling of all 6 MD/DO schools I've toured at; the ventilation was great. Like I said earlier; the tour should be longer and more detailed. The interview day starts around ~9am to about 130pm, so there actually could have been quite more time tour the campus. Overall, it was just great. Students/Staff/Faculty were very honest and candid about everything. The most candid of all the schools I've been at. If I get accepted, I'm going. " Report Response
