"The students were extremely friendly and excited to be at IU. Also, the close proximity of a variety of hospitals provides many clinical opportunities. They are also building more research facilities in a push to become one of the top med schools. Also they have opportunities to go to Kenya!!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There were tons of people interviewing on the same day as me. Plus, parking was insane! I got there 30 minutes early and it took me most of that time to find parking in the lot they said to park in. We did not see any of the hospitals on the tour, which I would have liked. Luckily, my interview was in one of the hospitals so I got to see a little. ALso, I do not like the fact that I could be placed in Podunk, IN for my first two years. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not to park where they said to!! Also, there was a lot of down time, so I wish I had brought a book or a magazine to read. The other interviewees were friendly, however, so it was easy to strike up conversations during the long waiting periods." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was very laid-back and conversational. My two interviewers were extremely nice and just wanted to get to know me as a person, asking about my travels, extracurriculars, etc. It was more like a conversation than an interview, even though they seemed to be filling out a form at times. I also was not asked anything about my high school experiences, GPA, and SAT, which I had expected from this website (which I think is good- who cares what you got on the SAT??)." Report Response
