What impressed you positively?

"It was a reading day when I went for a previous interview, so I enjoyed seeing classes this time. The patient simulator lab is very impressive, especially since it is coordinated with standardized patients." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. I'd like to address some previous comments. I live in Louisville, work four blocks from the school and volunteer at University Hospital, so I know about the neighborhood. There are projects near the medical school, but the school itself tends to be isolated from them & the security folks are great." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The process at UofL seems to be designed to relax the interviewee. Six applicants are brought in for an interview day. After a brief introduction by the Director of Admissions, a video is shown. After the video, students are taken for one-on-one interviews with both clinical and academic members of the faculty. Questions vary from interviewer to interviewer, but they all have a few in common. I like how the interviews are done immediately, so that applicants don't build up stress all day. Remember that although the process is relaxed, the school is a close community, and you are being watched." Report Response
