What are your general comments?

"It was a great first interview. We hardly spoke about medicine/science at all, it was mainly about my personal interests outside of school and my family background. Very low stress, they are just trying to make sure that you are a normal, likable person. He liked that I loved my undergraduate college, and I think its because they also want students to be enthusiastic about going to Columbia. Also, my interviewer told me that a special thing about columbia med students is that they are all superb in something outside of medicine, and that makes them more rounded human beings. So try to bring out your diverse interests during the interview." -Posted 09/15/2003 | Report Response
