What impressed you positively?

"Organized way of doing the interviews--you don't have to run around to all different places. Lots of school pride. I think I would like the block curriculum. P/F. Family Centered Experience where you spend time with a patient with chronic illness during your first two years." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Cold. Think Michigan/Ann Arbor would be a hard place for my significant other to find a job. Lack of electives for non-clinical studies. Really huge which is a + and a -. Didn't like how they sent a facebook of all the other interviewees--felt my privacy was not respected. Students only do half of the dissections in anatomy in groups of 3 (6 people to a cadaver). Students felt that the anatomy lab was taught exploratively and was not as structured." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviewers were really friendly. I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of other interviewees. It detracted from getting to know the school I felt. The school seems to be really great but I just feel concerned about the job market in Michigan in terms of my partner being able to find a job." Report Response
