What impressed you negatively?

"Interview was extrememly unorganized. I attend Howard University and I was extremely dissapointed on what happened at the interview. I waited until 5:30 for my interview. My interviewer was great, but the fact that everything was so crazy, pissed me off. They had us just waiting for like 4 hours. The tour was also a little whack. they should've showed us the hospital. I have interned in the hospital and that would get my attention and bring some positive stuff to the med school. We also had PLENTY of time to look around. They could have shown us the white house for the time we spent doing NOTHING!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I could've shown up there late." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was bad to begin with. Unorganized, non-interesting. With the bad reputation that Howard Med school has, it should try extra hard to put on a great impression for students. It shouldn't just be a safety school. The interviewer seemed very nice, I really liked her alot. She would be a big reason I would want to go there. But the disorganization of the interview process is a warning of things to come. Unfortunatley I will not be going to Howard." Report Response
