What was the most difficult question?

"The most difficult part was coming up with exact dates for everything I had done in the pretaining to dentistry, volunteering, and life. I kind of think that an open file would have made the faculty interivew more informative, because we wouldn't have had to go over all of that specific stuff. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I didn't really prepare - I think you have to be yourself, and I've already been accepted wuite a few places so I've had previous experience interviewing and wasn't very nervous either. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I am amazed that so many people have come away with such negative impressions of UCSF I really thought that t was great. I thoght that the clinics were really nice , as well as the campus. I like the fact that it feels like a little "health care village", and I loved being surrounded by other people who have passion for science and health care whether it be medicine, pharmacy, nursing or dentistry. I also really liked the gym!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The pre-clinics are not that great, but everything else is top notch. Also, they speak a lot about diversity, yet the majority of students (and interviewees) are asian. There did not seem to be a very high number of underrepresented minorities, they just replaced all of the white kids with asians. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it really is a great school. Make sure you don't take other people's opinions to heart too much. You really have to see a place for itself. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think I've seaid enough already!" Report Response
