How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, book: "How to prepare for medical school", talked to other SDN people about the interview. USE The PM info to ask questions of people you see that have interviewed. I'm jonb12997. Feel free to PM me!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"LOVE The facilities. The school is really really nice. Wireless internet on the whole campus! The students were very friendly and talkative, not just our student hosts. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much. I personally got VERY nervous in the interview (b/c it's my top choice school and I just get nervous in these things), so I didn't enjoy the actual interview. But I think it still went well. (the MSII student that interviewed me actually said, "you're nervous aren't you? Relax we're just here to get to know you". I wish they would have had a few more organized things for us. I also wish they would have had a printout of the financial" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It's a long ways away from the town of biddeford. Be careful of watching the route signs, it's REALLY easy to go right past the road for the school. Try to drive it before hand if you can (like the night before). Be careful of the exit off of I95, lots of construction (but when does Maine not have construction, oh that's right it's called winter :-D). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I loved the school. The students were really friendly. The DO and the MSII that interviewed me, really just wanted to get to know who I was. I didn't get the impression that they were worried about what I was saying, they just wanted to see if you were a real person with real goals and really are committed to the school and osteopathic medicine. they kept saying, ASK QUESTIONS, there are no questions that are dumb. I even asked my interviewers, "what do YOU like the most about the school?" I think it went well. Again, feel free to PM me!" Report Response
