What impressed you positively?

"How UK has such a "campus" feeling since it's not located in a large city, how friendly everyone was, and the small class size." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"UK has a small patient pool, so it's often difficult to see all the different kinds of cases in patients." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Allow PLENTY of time to get there if you're driving from a nearby hotel. I was nearly late because of all the traffic, plus I had to wait on a train, and it took forever to park and find where I was supposed to go. I got there with less than a minute to spare." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I put a stress level of 7 above only because I was almost late, and didn't have time to relax, go to the bathroom, etc. The interviews themselves were completely NON-stressful. One interviewer focuses on your academics, the second does not know your grades or DAT score. Although in my case, we mainly just chit-chatted about music in both interviews since they were quite impressed with my grades and scores (academic interview) and recommendations (personal interview), etc. The interviewers spent a lot of the time trying to sell me their school/convince me to go there."
