What impressed you positively?

"This is really a great school. I'm surprised that it doesn't have the same national recognition as some other schools that are ranked lower. Awesome technology integration, weekly quizzes during M1 (great for keeping procrastinators like me in check), organ-based curriculum, Ann Arbor is a great little college town." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The one weakness is that the patient population is not very diverse in Ann Arbor, but UofM hospital is the major medical center for all of Michigan, so you will see a lot of different types of cases." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Even though it is a state school, it attracts top students from across the country. Make sure you know how to get to the admissions office beforehand! The campus is very large and is it easy to get lost." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"3 interviews back to back to back can be a little tiring and the 30 minute limit for each can be a little constraining. But all the interviewers knew my AMCAS very well and most of the questions were based on that." Report Response
