What are your general comments?

"I had three interviews because I asked for a third interview after my experience interviweing with someone who had a clear bias against women, especially someone with children who wants to attend medical school. I will add however, that the admissions staff was very helpful in aranging for an alternate interview at my request. That interview was the best of the three I had, probably because I was very interested in that aspect of the medical school, and so I more in common with the person. I was negatively impressed by the way the students giving the tour interacted with us. Compared to other places I've interviewed, they seemed very uptight,rushing us through lunch and all through the tour. They seemed more interested in getting it over with that in getting to know us. Of the four schools I've interviewed at this fall, I would say this one is the most obsessed with image and with stature. They spent a lot of time telling us how Rochester is the best and how they were leaders in various aspects of medical education, research, community outreach, international education... etc--even that they are the #1 nationwide in charitable giving for United Way per capita. This suggested an underlying need to be make an impression--which somehow didn't impress me. " Report Response
