What impressed you positively?

"There are so many programs for people interested in community-based medicine and public health. Primary care is taken seriously, and students get a chance to practice their clinical skills during community weeks at primary care sites during the first and second years. Chapel Hill is a great area, and there are so many other types of people- it's not all medical students- you have the whole university at your fingertips. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The school has a great program for people interested in working with the Latino community- it's called Campos, and you test into it, and get priority for clinical opportunities at sites where there are many Spanish-speakers." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day begins early, at 7:30 or so in the news admissions building, which is pretty nice. All applicants are shown to a reception area/waiting room where they can hang out, read about the school, and even browse a database of the faculty interviewers. The interviews are in the morning and the afternoon, depending on your schedule, and the interviewers come to get you. I had one faculty interviewer, and one medical student interviewer. Mid-day, medical students take you on a tour, and have lunch with you to answer any questions you have. Day ends pretty early, and overall is very laid back. " Report Response
