How did you prepare for the interview?

"not a whole lot...I read a bit on current medical issues" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I was pleasantly surprised, honestly. They are building a brand new hospital, which should be done soon. 3rd and 4th years get tons of hands-on experience. The students appear to have a genuine rapport--not a whole lot of cutthroat competitiveness. Also, despite the fact that UMC isn't really highly ranked, its students match at some pretty impressive places." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"not a whole lot...again, I was pretty pleased with the whole experience." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"how to get to the admissions office...it is not anywhere near the registrar or the library...but a nice lady at the registrar's office walked me right over, so everything worked out fine" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Really, everything is pretty laidback. I promise. :) If any of the questions they asked me seem weird, don't worry...they came out of a fairly natural flow of conversation. No one is going to try to trip you up or scare you. They really just want to get to know you. Plus, they feed you lunch and pay for your parking, which doesn't hurt. They are all about selling their school, so just sit back and enjoy. :) Interviews are open-file, but the interviewer can choose to look at your file before or after they interview you. I had one of each type." Report Response
