At the school
"Can you explain the trend in your undergraduate grades? - the interviewer was definitely looking for ways to defend me in front of a committee"
"Tell me about your research."
"Why did you decide to become a doctor?"
"Can you explain some of your grades?"
"Looked at SDN and reviewed my application materials"
"Well, it was Harvard name to be honest. The hospitals are awesome, though they don't show that to you. The library was very nice also, though not study friendly."
"The Medical Education Center was a bit older than I expected. They didn't do a good job describing why PBL is any better than the traditional approach. Seems to me that students from both types of curricula go off and become equally successful..."
"I wish I had been to at least one interview before this one."
"Overall it was good. Harvard is a great school. However, they did not do a good job answering my questions about PBL. I felt students were generally blowing off their classes, especially during their first year. One of my interviewers told me that it took a certain level of intelligence to understand PBL. Even though the comment was made in a non-judgemental context, I felt that this attitude may be a case of the emperor having no clothes."
