How did you prepare for the interview?

"read over questions on this site and looked up some ethics stuff, read umich's website (med admissions website is not terribly helpful, but if you do some searching, you can find what you're looking for), got a good night's sleep and had my dad drop me off at the front door" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything - the admissions staff is very friendly and I felt like they had taken the time to get to know my application, the facilities are amazing and the new construction should make the health center world-class. My interviewers really knew my app and were genuinely interested in talking to me. They all loved the school and made me really want to go here. The faculty seems very responsive to student feedback. I really like the technology (flex-time quizzes and tests - take them online from Friday 5 PM till Monday 8 AM, PDAs for 3rd years, online clinical skills simulator for practice)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"not much - AA is a great town, but it's lacking in diversity (luckily, you can do some clinical rotations in Detroit if you want to), worried that because lectures are video-taped and put on the web that no one would come and it would be harder to interact w/ classmates" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that I was going to have 3 faculty interviews instead of 2 faculty 1 student like they said!" Report Response

"Very positive, at the end, we got to evaluate our interviewers so it felt like they really wanted to make us comfortable" Report Response
