How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read the ancient feedback on this site. More people need to submit feedback!!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"One admissions staff member was pretty excited about the school." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Most everything. The school seems to have been left exactly as it was when originally built in the 1970s. We weren't shown any labs, only the lecture halls, library and cafeteria. We didn't meet any BS/MD students. Their perspective would have been useful, too. There was no real discussion about how the school would help us become good doctors or why we would want to attend NEOUCOM. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that the interview day would be so short and cover so little about the school. The website is just horrible but I figured that the school would really try to sell themselves during the interview day....like all the other schools do. Had I known, I would definitely had written down some questions." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was mostly them asking me questions and letting me talk. The questions weren't weird or anything. They seemed to be playing good cop/bad cop. One interviewer was really nice and the other tried to contradict me. It was more fun than the interviews where they tell you how great you are the whole time." Report Response
