What impressed you negatively?

"Financial aid presentation (not very helpful), The tour was rushed and we didn't see as much as I wanted, the fact that the admissions dir tells you you are interviewing for the "continuing students list"-basically the waiting list...you feel like "well, why am I here???"" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"We did not get a chance to see the facilities the way I would've liked...Also, the neigborhood is not that bad, trust me! If you've never left the suburbs, yes. If you're a relatively cultured person whose traveled to many cities, it's a typical urban city with good parts and parts you have to be more cautious in...if it concerns you that much, scratch of 90% of the US med schools and only apply to UCLA." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview was first thing in the morning. The interviewer was so pleasant and smiled the entire time. We talked for 5 minutes, I asked some questions for the next 5, then I was done. The gen presentation and fin aid pres. were horrible. The tour guides were great, very honest, but we basically peeked into the hospital and the classroom, and that's all. the day was very short, which is a pos and a neg I guess. Ddin't get the impression that they were recruiting me, which explains why they admit so many people every year just to fill the class." Report Response
