"The price!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities were pretty run down. There were times when I felt like I was in prison while in the med school building. Also, Detroit Receiving is having serious financial problems, although this was not discussed by anyone. When you go, bring it up. Also, this was possibly the least informative of all the interviews I have gone on. I walked away knowing very little about the school because they do not give any presentations, my interviewer was a doctor so I couldnt waste her time asking a ton of questions, and the student tour guides focused on the dumbest issues like ID cards. Also, with so many kids per class, it seemed a little like a doctor factory." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I am from the metro-Detroit area and Wayne is the school that almost every doctor in the area came from. Its undergrad and other grad programs dont have the best reputation and I had said for many years that Wayne would be the last place I would want to go to medical school. However, some of the things that are really appealing to me about the school are its rock-bottom price for in-state students, the fact I could live in the metro-Detroit area which I love, and that Wayne is affiliated with many of the hospitals to which I want to apply for a residency at. With these things considered I definitely cannot rule out that I will go there. (ohh I got accepted on oct. 15) Everyone I talk to in the health field says that wayne produces great doctors and i think i am going to make an appointment with the admissions office in hopes of getting some more of my questions answered. Good luck." Report Response
