What impressed you positively?

"The students were awesome. One picked me up from the airport and took tons of her own time to show me around campus and the school and in addition the two of us hung out outside of the school atmosphere as well." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview was not at all laid back. One of the interviewers only looked at me like twice and I felt like I was talking to a brick wall. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew that MN residents were pretty disadvantaged here, but I didn't know that only 6 were accepted. I don't think that I would have gone to the trouble of filling out the 17 page non-AMCAS application, and the expense of flying to ND, etc if I would have realized that." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The experience (minus the actual interview) was great. The facilities seemed nice and the student body was great. The new mock clinic was great and the area actually seemed like it was nice too. I love the idea of patient centered learning (you MUST know about this if you are going to interview here, they ask about it!)Unfortunately the other schools that I've interviewed at have had hospitals attached so not having one right there made UND seem a little sub par."
