What impressed you positively?

"NOTHING! - The current students I talked to seemed cold and competetive. From my experience, it also seemed that the faculty is more involved in their own research and publishing than teaching. I thought the UofU was prestigous compared to other nearby schools; but I don't think so anymore." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview was 15 minutes long, no tour, no program overview/orientation, and no real interaction with any student or faculty member. My final question was, "Is there anything you would like us to know about yourself?" and I felt like they didn't listen to anything I said or even cared. I don't know how they can possibly learn more about a student from the 5 questions asked in this interview." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"a high GPA and PCAT score in the 90's is important for this school because it shows that the student can learn without any faculty assistance. " Report Response
