How did you prepare for the interview?

"I am a UofM undergrad, so I had the opportunity to go see the facilities ahead of time. Reading SDN. Reading the website and brushing up on their new curriculum. Talking to current students. Reviewing all AMCAS and secondary materials." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Even being an undergrad here, I didn't quite realize how nice the facilities are. The school is ranked in more lists and publications then I have ever heard of, including some VERY impressive ones (Residency Directors Ranking = #2). All the students were really nice, and you really got the feeling that they enjoyed being there- all very low stress. They were all very proud and happy about the fact that the curriculum at UM is very "customizable" to your preferences and lifestyle as a student. Ann Arbor is a great town. The flex-time testing program M1, as well as P/F M1 and possibly M2 are great features. Clinical time starts M1. Lots to be impressed by here." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The rankings were thrown in your face what felt like several hundred times throughout the day. I think everyone was fully aware before they got there that it is a great school. No real BIG negatives to the interview day or to the school in general." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing caught me too off guard. I would have liked to have known that I was going to be in a group of about 40 students interviewing that day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was really nervous about the 3 back-to-back-to-back interviews, and they were in fact kind of stressful being organized that way, but in the end it wasn't a big deal because the interviewers were all really nice. The school is great" Report Response
