"Connecticut is gorgeous!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the campus is in the middle of nowhere - you can't walk anywhere off campus and Hartford really isn't too exciting (one student actually told me that if you want to have fun, don't come here); I was also negatively impressed the stress level of students - I have seen a bunch of schools and the students just looked really unhappy at UConn; I was also negatively impressed with the pre-clinical labs (I'd heard that they had top-of-the line facilities, and I definitely have seen much nicer facilities than the ones I saw at UConn). " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that there is NOTHING around the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was definitely the most intense interview I have had. I felt that the interviewers didn't really get to know me because they seemed to be purposely trying to make me uncomfortable. The unfriendly attitude towards me made me not as friendly back, which I don't think is a way to interview someone. They also asked a lot of questions about the other schools I was applying to, which I didn't appreciate. They should just interview me for UConn and not make any judgement based on the other schools I'm applying to. " Report Response
