What impressed you positively?

"The school slowly adapts you to med school life. The first year students start off in orientation, then take a fairly simple class for a couple weeks, and finally start building up to the more typical med school class. The location is also incredible." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wanted to answer questions that were asked to the other applicants in my interview and maybe pass some of my questions off to them." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was not nearly as stressful as I anticipated. We all meet in the admissions office. We are taken to another room for a little talk, and then we head to our group interviews. The group interviews are the same as normal interviews, but you get a chance to sit back and listen to other candidates respond to questions. It is really interesting how other applicants respond. We also had an individual interview. I spent about a half an hour talking to one of the nicest person I've ever met. It was very laid back, and we talked about anything I felt like telling him.
