What are your general comments?

"The interview process was relatively painless. I think I was more nervous than those around me since this was my first time applying to Brody and my first interview anywhere. My first interview was truly closed-file. He started off by asking me where I went to school, my grades, my hometown, where my family lived, what I did for fun, etc. My second interview was definitely more positive (a 4th year) since we shared similar interests and similar backgrounds. This made the time fly by. I have seen other's imput on the school making it seem like a ghetto and not that much to do around here. But if you are in med school, wouldn't you rather not have constant distracting activities so you can focus on school? Greenville is not that far from just about anything you would want to do (Raleigh two hours away, beach two hours away, mountains 5 hours away and DC about 4 hours away). In my opinion, this is as good a location as any for med school. The hospital is nice and it is growing at the moment. I like the fact that they are building a new heart center to serve as a research and clinical facility. From talking with the tour guides, the faculty are eager to help and want to see you succeed. The hospital cafeteria is terrific (you can eat for almost nothing there and open 24 hrs.). My second interviewer had mentioned that even up to the 4th year, many students still remain close friends and plan to stay in contact even after school. The one thing that you need to keep in mind is that Brody is focused on doctors who want to practice in underserved areas. This is not a secret from anybody that has read the mission of Brody. Just something to keep in mind when applying and interviewing." Report Response
