What impressed you positively?

"I was interviewed at a regional location, so I only got to meet a Duke alumni who practices in California. He was really, really nice and took the interviewing very seriously." -Posted 03/05/2003 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish my interview was open-file so that the interviewer would have had some backgbround. What I didn't like is that he forgot to tell me that it was closed-file (he later apologized), so that during the first part of the interview I omitted a few things which I figured would have been repetitions from my application. Later, as I realized he didn't get my references to the application, I backtracked. If you are not sure if it is open/closed file-AKS." -Posted 03/05/2003 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How "down to earth" my interviewer was even though he went to Duke Med School." -Posted 03/05/2003 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very enjoyable conversation. I didn't feel that I was being questioned, but at the end I felt as if I got all of my points across. I was a little concerned if the fact that I had a regional interview would have a negative effect. But I was reassured by the admissions secretaries and the interviewer that it will not. We shall see. At least I didn't have to deal with all the other stressed out over-achivers (j/k)." -Posted 03/05/2003 | Report Response
