At the school
"Why do you want to go into medicine?"
"Tell me about your research."
"What do you think your greatest challenge will be as a physician?"
"Who are your role models in medicine?"
"Looked over web page, viewbook"
"The way technology is integrated into the learning process. Every student has a personal page with all the info for his or her classes -- notes, diagrams, etc -- and videos of the lectures are on the web. This also goes into the labs and the tutorial classrooms."
"Nothing was really obviously unimpressive, but I realized that maybe PBL isn't for me."
"That my second interview would be at Mass General (at 4:00) -- a shuttle ride away, and on a different T line."
"No, I wasn't asked to open any windows. When Harvard says they don't conduct stressful interviews, they mean that the interviews are not in a class by themselves -- they resembled basic med school interviews, with an average stress level. All the facilities there are nice. Not having a big home base hospital has positives and negatives. My hosting experience was great."
