North Carolina is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the area around the school is nice. Winston-Salem is definitely a small town, and it has all the positives and negatives associated with it. I love that the hospital is attached to the med school, and that you actually get to go into the anatomy lab as a post bac. You don't get to actually cut anything, but you are definitely there with a real body to learn.
I also liked how friendly all the admissions staff were, how they really seemed to know a lot about you as an applicant.
I was also impressed with all of my fellow candidates - you guys are pretty awesome, and I have no idea how they are only going to pick 10 out of the 25 of us.
Obviously the only solution is for 15 of us to be accepted into med school before mid may and withdraw our applications
until we hear!
You said it UruKai! The selection committee will definitely have their hands full.
Wake was awesome and the past and present post bac'ers even awesomer. I was most impressed by how close the post bac'ers were. You got the sense that they were family and that it wasn't every man for themselves. I liked the community feel of Wake. Everyone was friendly, said hi to you, willing to answer questions, and give directions and walk with you to your destination (especially when you are wandering lost in the hospital trying to find the interview room --> that would be me lol).
Judging by the past and present post bac'ers they selected I think they know exactly what they are looking for cause each one of them were great. So the best of luck to all those who interviewed it was a pleasure meeting you and I hope we hear some good news come mid May.
lol and for those who made fun of my cheesecake... I never got the chance to eat it smh.
