"There are so many different hospitals close to the school. There are underground tunnels connecting the different hospitals. Everyone was nice and seemed to enjoy being there." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"No one could tell me a reason they went to the school except that it was in state. I asked my interviewer why he liked Detroit and he couldn't give me an answer. I was expecting them to sell the school to me, but they didn't try. They figured I was too good for the school or something. Hell, I would go there if it meant getting to go to med school at all! They shouldn't have had that attitude. I sure didn't. The interviewer was falling asleep and forgot some of my answers and had me repeat them!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The cultural life is very lacking. No one could tell me anything fun to do around there. I also wish I would have known how expensive cab rides were to the airport! Carpool if you can!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had an overall positive experience and I would go to the school if I didn't get in anywhere else. Most of the people there are from Michigan or have family there. Detroit is very sparse and run down so you better know how to find things to do. I liked the school, the classes, and the clinical opportunities that Wayne had to offer and I think it would be a very enjoyable school." Report Response
