What impressed you positively?

"The students were very happy there and were the most friendly I've encountered. The students also spoke highly of their instructors. The student run clinics also sound impressive." Report Response

"The new medical school building won't be ready for another year or two. At least they're building one." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I wouldn't get a chance to tour the medical center in Sacramento or interview with a student. Student fees will increase next year, but UC is still a bargain." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"A few questions were about things on my AMCAS app and secondary, which were standard. Otherwise the whole interview was very conversational and laid back. We covered quite a diversity of topics in our conversations, none of which I ever expected to talk about in a med school interview. This was a refreshing change from other interviews. My interviewer was very nice and knew my application thoroughly. Overall a positive experience and my top choice for medical school." Report Response
