What are your general comments?

"My interview experience was awesome. That Dr. Nicholas made me feel so comfortable. We spoke about everything BUT medicine. He only asked 5 questions, and not one of them addressed academics or the MCAT. It also helped that he had a lot of the same interests that I have (he helps to run a pediatric AIDS program in the Dominican Republic, and I have done a lot of work there). Just be yourself, don't try to give your interviewer an answer you think he/she wants to hear. Be genuine, open, and honest, and I promise you will love your interview. Also, make sure you prepare some interesting questions for your interviewer. 15 minutes of my interview were allotted specifically for MY questions." -Posted 04/12/2008 | Report Response
