What are your general comments?

"I had a great experience at Michigan. All the admissions people were very friendly. Interviews were all conversational and interviewers were all receptive to what I was saying. Facilities are pretty good -- they use the newest technology and keep all the buildings (hospitals and med school bldgs) updated. Technology is very well integrated into the curriculum -- all lectures (at least for M1) are videotaped and posted on the web to watch and a PDA with useful software is given to you in M3 year. Michigan has both M1 and M2 pass or fail and the best part is they don't rank students for these 2 years. While some schools have a similar system, they secretly rank students and give that information to residency directors. Umich has no such policy. The students seemed enthusiastic about the school. In general, I had a great time and hopefully if I get in, I will seriously consider going there." Report Response
