What impressed you positively?

"SO MUCH! Everyone is mad friendly, the school has great facilities, the curriculum is flexible, and they seem to treat their students really well--this was all evidenced by everything from the well-equipped student lounge to allowing students to choose anytime between Friday afternoon and Monday morning to take their quizzes and tests. People seemed really down-to-earth and unpretetnious. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I'm from GA, so I won't lie....it's cold and that is something I'll have to make my peace with if I choose to go there. Oddly, I was the only southerner there, and out of ~20 girls, I was the only one wearing a skirt suit!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"-How much of a pain it is to get between the med school and the airport!!! Plan in advance! -How relaxed everything was. The interviewers are really nice and want you to like UMich and Ann Arbor; just be yourself." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Relax! The interviewers are really nice and want you to like UMich and Ann Arbor; just be yourself. I think most of my interview time was spent on interviewers telling me about how great the city is--and it definitely looks lively. The admissions office takes good care of you throughout the day--breakfast and lunch are provided, and they make sure you know where you are and where you're going. They're also very fast and responsive...I found out two days after interviewing that I was accepted :) This school is DEFINITELY in my "top three" and there is a very good chance I would come here. The only thing that might stop me is that if I'm going to be somewhere cold, I don't really want to need a car (I don't really know how to drive in snow/ice or maintain a car in such conditions!) and Ann Arbor probably won't be the best place for that....but we'll see. The flexibility and friendliness of this place, not to mention the great MD and MPH programs could overshadow that one doubt :) " Report Response
