"school's website, MSAR, talked to a prof of mine who went to UM for his grad work (not in medicine)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"University Hospital is a beatiful, state of the art facility, as are the other hospitals (children's, cancer/geriatric, outpatient facility); UM's reputation in the eye of residency directors; students themselves were great; the computers and technology integration into the curriculum - this is the most techno-happy school I've seen so far (even more so than Baylor in my opinion); Ann Arbor seemed like a great place to live and be a student" Report Response

"the financial aid presentation may as well have been given in Latin" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"how huge the complex is and how tough it would be to find the admissions office - my student-host gave me great directions, but MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO GET THERE IN THE MORNING! it would be very confusing for someone with no clue as to where they are." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This is a very solid school overall. They don't do any one thing to knock your socks off, but when you look at the entire package they clearly are a top-tier school. Facilities, students, curriculum - all look very good. The admissions staff is very friendly and straightforward about what will happen after the interview. The interviewers seemed much more interested in just seeing how I communicate and think rather than grill me with stupid questions." Report Response
