    Miglo or SD,
    When we interviewed at UHS on the 27th did they say we would receive a response on 10/8 or did they say they would send them out on 10/8? I've been doing well until today. I got nervous when I opened the front door of my apartment today thinking, "maybe", just maybe it will be today as I envisioned my wife telling me congratulations and giving me a kiss, but NOTHING. I know it will come soon enough, but the days are dragging. Maybe you can ease my suffering.

    Bri1856 REALLY!? My interviewers told me they will mail it out 10/15! They said I could call them 10/15 to find out the results. I'm actually HOPING that it would come the 15th so that I have more time to decide whether to go to UHS or WUCOMP. ACk!!

    IDAHO: Sorry buddy I can't remember you! What did you look like (don't say "I was in a suit")? What did we talk about?

    Thanks for your input.

    Hey Texas,

    I am originally from Kansas, but have been living in Texas the last few years. I, too, am married and concerned about employment and other issues regarding my spouse. But, KC is a big enough city that there shouldn't be any problem. I spoke to a married tour guide (Benji, I think) and he said his wife had no problem finding a good paying job.

    Sara and Ryan,
    I really don't know who you are, other than the fact that I noticed you interviewed at UHS on the 27th. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, introduced myself as Ryan originating from the state of Idaho and now attending school in Houston, Texas.

    Congratulations guys!!! I was accepted to UHS also. I'm trying to decide between UHS and NOVA. But, I was really impressed with the UHS/COM's facilities, the students and the professors.

    How was the interview? Did you get to see a lot of the school and facilities. How were the interviewers? UHS seems like a nice school so far. I just reserved my flight, so I guess I will find out soon enough. Again, it is great to hear about acceptances. Maybe we will be classmates next year!

    Later,

    Texas,
    Hey, good luck with your interview. I was extremely impressed with UHS. I think that one factor that makes them stand above the rest (in my eyes) is their faculty. I was interviewed by one science professor and a physician from Kansas City. They were awesome! They aswered all of my questions, and seemed to be very genuine and sincere. Talk to UHS2002 or ask your student tour guide on your interview day for more information on the faculty. I was impressed. They will be a very important key to your competence as a future physician.
    Another thing I am very impressed with is that every person I have talked to, whether they were accepted or not, has been very positive about the school. I think that it says a lot when students that were not accepted agree that it is an excellent school.
    The facilities were great. You will be able to see most of the labs, classrooms, library, computer labs, etc. etc. when you tour the campus.
    After doing a lot of personal research into UHS and other DO schools I have decided to cancel all of my other interviews in favor of attending UHS. Great School!
    If you have any question at all, feel free to e-mail me. You can get my e-mail address on the icon above this message.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

    It was the interview at UHS that has convinced me to cancel all my other interviews. (6 of them) The students, facilities and faculty are great! The town is kinda hoky (compared to California) but its nice. I'm going to do more research on the school before I send in my deposit, but all signs point to UHS so far.

    Watch it Miglo, that "hokiness" [sp?] as you call it is what we midwesterners refer to as wholesome living. Don't be ragging on the heartland.

    Hey DocGibby, didn't mean to offend ya! I meant that in a good way. Its probably a whole lot better than the "a don't give a rats-ass about anything" attitude we have here in good old Califa.

    congratulations to all of you who were accepted to UHS. I am interviewing there on Monday October 18 and would appreciate any words of advise any of you have. How were the interviews? Was it an enjoyable day? I have heard nothing but great reviews of this school, I can't wait to see it.

    The faculty at UHS is probably the NICEST group of people I've met bar-none. From what I've heard, all the DO schools are terrific though. Just relax and be yourself.

    It was a very easy going interview. I would have to say it was more like having a conversation with a friend than an interview. I was very pleased.

    The interviewers and students are very easy to talk to and also very nice. During my interview it seemed like they had a list of questions they had to ask and they were all in interviewfeedback.com. The rest of the interview was just a conversation about yourself like strength's and weaknesses.

    HeLLO Fellow UHS Class 2004!!!!!
    We thought we would reply and keep this string of posts alive! We are a husband and wife team who got an acceptance to UHS early March. I can feel the excitement off this post and wanted the early acceptees to relive the feeling. [​IMG] Have any of you researched the areas you'd like to live?? What have you done since your acceptance other than explode with excitement every now and then?? We have submitted our deposit and are awaiting financial aid info. Other than that, we look forward to meeting all of you in August.
