How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, read their website, read the packet they sent, talked to people i knew that interviewed last year." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"basically everything, ann arbor is a great city, campus is beautiful, i liked their curriculum, the facilities were nice and they are moving towards adding more technology within the next year which would make them as up to date as any of the other schools i visited." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"nothing" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"i had heard rumors that the facilities were not as nice as other schools and you don't get as much clinical experience, but after visiting i do not think that is true. the building is older and of a more 'traditional' look than the newer and more modern schools, but i actually really liked it and they will get more technology before or soon after i would be there if i got in. the curriculum seemed to incorporate plenty of experience." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a really nice time, all the faculty and staff seemed extremely friendly and approachable, the interview was very informal over lunch and nothing to worry about. i think my interviewer and i had a really nice conversation, it was all standard questions and i was asked several times if i had any questions for them. the series of presentations that they had at the beginning of the day really answered a lot of questions i had. the students were all very friendly too and really wanted to answer questions. students said that most people have more or less of a cooperative attitude and are not overly competitive."
