What impressed you negatively?

"Greenville is out in the middle of nowhere and there didn't seem to be very much in the town. At least if you went to medical school there, you would have no distractions whatsoever. When I asked one of my tour guides what people do around here she said, "Uhhh... there's a bowling alley. There's a movie theater too I think..."" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I started off the day at 10:00 am in the admissions office. It was me and 2 other people. We started out by filling out a questionaire about what specialty we were interested in, and of course, unless you're stupid, you're going to put some kind of primary care/rural medicine as one of your top choices. Then I had two interviews, one-on-one, with faculty members. They are closed file, but both interviewers kept slipping in questions that would've been answered if they'd just looked at my file. "What's your GPA? What's your major? What was your MCAT score?" I didn't really understand that, unless they're trying to double check or something. Both of them also asked me what other schools I was applying to and sending seconardies to. Of course, after we got through all of the questions they had planned to ask me, the tone of the interview became much more conversational and we just talked about whatever. Then after the interviews we had a short tour of the med school and ate lunch in the cafeteria." Report Response
