And even though it was cold, windy, and rainy, Ann Arbor was still beautiful. Plus, I saw a great ice hockey game! " Report Response

"That all of the builings of the medical campus are linked together by hamster Habitrail hallways. Very cool, you don't have to go outside in the bad weather. If I'd known that, I probably wouldn't have gotten so lost." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was a bit late to the interview, so my first impression was being lost in the medical school. A little stressful, compounded when I walked into a room with about fifty applicants and of course the only seat was in the front row. However, UM puts on a great Interview Day. The presentations were useful and exciting, the interviewers had clearly read my file and were ready with questions. They were very friendly, supportive, and enthusiastic. The students who led us on the tour were reassuring and full of helpful information. For such a scary start I had a wonderful experience and UM moved to the top of my list!" Report Response
