As a freshman, UCLA was my #1, for no particular reason other than I just wanted to go there.
Before beginning the season, UCLA was my #1, because of many aspects of the schools, including location, the hospital, the ability to use my Spanish/treat Hispanic populations, etc.
and now ending out my application season, UCLA is still my #1 choice. I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to interview here and I absolutely love the school, the students, THE WEATHER, and everything really.
I thought the MMI was kinda fun, and felt I did well, at the very least, I didn\'t feel like any station went horribly wrong.
Being in D.C. a lot, I thought I would love this school. My interview was the worst (and really the only \"bad\" one at all). He spent the whole time badgering me about why I wouldn\'t just choose my state school over Georgetown, and even when I told him that I didn\'t have an interview there, he simply said that I would and would get in. It was rude and abrasive and called for my best fake smiling skills ever. Afterwards, I realized I had the answer to his question...I definitely WOULD choose my state school over GT.
Moreover, I have stayed with student host at every single interview except one. All of them were extremely welcoming, except at GT. I know that is a small percentage of the student body, but I don\'t think I would fit in here.
Summary of Experience:
I actually had a very enjoyable time at UMB. Both of my interviewers were very nice and I thought we clicked well. It is my state school, and is a good one at that, so I am hoping for an acceptance! It is a financial deal that you can\'t beat and the hospital and Trauma Center are world class.
Summary of Experience:
When I left this school, I started having panic attacks about the idea of not getting in. Weird, I know, but I just felt so at home at this school. The students, the administration, the opportunities, the city, the location, my interviewer. Everything seemed to fit my personality to a tee.
Unfortunately, this school is expensive. I am worried (I know, weird) that if I am accepted to my state school, I will be forced to turn down NYU in order to save a good chunk of money. But it wouldn\'t come without some tears, and it would be a hard decision to make.
