    I live here in AZ so my first choice would be to stay in state and save money. I'm looking for opinions on how good the medical program is.

    Thanks.

    HEY!!
    I'm from tucson and applied to UofA. I don't really know what the stats are, but I want to go back home for med school too.(Tucson's great isn't it?)

    The school can't be terrible...I have heard too many good things about it. (students and community) Did you take your MCAT in August or earlier? Have they contacted you yet?

    Anyhow...good luck and keep in touch. We might be able to exchange some info!!:clap:

    Hey, thanks for the response. I still have a year before I apply, but I am really looking forward to it especially if I could get into UofA. I could save some needed cash.

    Where are you at in your program? Have you applied?

    Thanks.

    Hey guys/gals,

    I'm a first year at UofA and I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. It's midterms week so I might be a little slow but I'll get back to you as soon as I can. To be brief, my experience so far has been great and I'm sure I'm getting a high quality education. Let me know if you have any questions.

    hey wehre wer eu all a few weeks ago when i posted if anyone was from Az! I am at ASU right now, just interviewed at U of A and thought it was awsome. Everyoen seemed way laid back and i loved the school. The city sucks and is horrid but the schools is awsome.. Our surgeon general now.. Dr. Karmona taught there up until this year. it is also cool caues it has that non competitive feel.. they dont have a ranking system so you dont have to feel so compeittive etc. I just liked the overall feel. But the disapointing thing is that tuition is going up.. the lady told me they have been averagin 2k a year increase.. man. Supposed to be up to 12 this year. Anyway .. anyone else at ASU?? im finsihing up my last semster there!

    Uh, excuse me DR. WALL $TREET...but did you say that Tucson sucks? :eek:
    You've gotta be from Phoenix....:mad:

    As you may have guessed I am from TUCSON :love: :clap:

    and was raised a wildcat, so you can take your little snottydevil (sorry sun DEVIL) attitude and GET LOST !! :laugh:


    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA....I was always fond of the UofA / ASU rivalry.
    P.S. one word about our football team and your done. :p

    Hopefully we can settle this in Tucson come August 2003 !!! I hope!

    Dr. Wall$treet how was your interview? Who did it? What did you do?

    U OF A ....:clap: U OF A ....:clap: U OF A ....:clap: U OF A ....:clap:

    Anyhow...no, I don't go to the U. I went out of state to Louisiana to play softball for Northwestern State University but I am still AZ resident all the way. And I really miss Tucson! I hope I hear from them soon. Have you already taken the MCAT before this August? I haven't heard from them yet, but I took the MCAT for the first time in AUG... I hope that is the only reason. Unless they don't consider me a resident. They better! I filed taxes and still have my driver's license in AZ!!

    Well...you're on my buddy list so let's keep in touch! Good luck with the MCAT !! :(
    I'm skeered too!

    Hey Wallstreet, you interviewed at UA already? When did they start interviewing? I haven't submitted my AMCAS so I'm still in the dark. I've heard UA interviews are pretty easygoing. Was this true in your case? How long did it take you to receive the secondary after submitting the AMCAS and how long was it before you received an invitation for an interview? I'm also finishing up at the porn palace, aka ASU (I've got one more semester left), and like you, I'm also waiting on the August scores. I'll probably give in this time and fork up the $15 bucks to find out a week early. I called the people at MCAT and they said scores should be up by this Saturday. Speaking of Carmona, did you know he was a member of the SWAT team? There was a whole article about him shooting (and killing) some guy that turned out to be a fugitive wanted for murder. College porn stars and gun-toting surgeons: you gotta love Arizona!

    hey guys,, whats ur name? u go to ASU?? that is awsome. this is my last semester too. HA hey u forgot.. cowboys and rednecks also unfortunatly populate this ignorant state but ya u gotta love alot aobut it. Like the weather this past two days.. OH man it is perfect, finally remmebered why the heck im living out here! It totaly didnt help us applicants taht ASU got voted numero uno party schoo.. i mean lets hope adcoms didnt hear much baout it! makes ASU look bad damnit! Ya my interivew was totally laid back. I intervied on the first day they had interivews, i had my stuff in early. i did amcas in july. they sent me a secondary prety quick after verification. Dont worry though, U of A doesnt have rolling admissions, rather they evaluated all applicants in december so it wont hurt you as long as u get your interveiw done by december. Ok um let me know ur major nad name.. surely we have had classes together. im taking biochem, ochem lab 2 and Organic evolution rightnow as far as science goes.. im also a finance major. ok ltr.. ya carmona does everything! he was a informant for the show E.R, swat guy,, i heard him speak last yer sounded super intersting. ok ltr
