I listened to "Hail to the Victors" from my UofM Marching band CD! :-)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"It was obvious that Michigan cared a lot about the students and they all seemed happy and enthusiastic about their education. I like that they intentionally have large (40+) groups of interviewees in at once so that you have a chance to meet a lot of people who might end up as your classmates. Details of the exceptional preparation student's receive during their 3rd year were impressive. The 45 minute interactive presentation on their medical education technology was also impressive. I like the FCE and Medbuddies programs a lot too. The quality of achievement, character, & personality of my fellow interviewees was impressive! " Report Response
