What impressed you negatively?

"My student interviewer had no interest in having a conversation with me. He wanted to ask his questions and write down my answers. Later on, he was on his cellphone instead of interacting with applicants. The admissions staff set an odd tone for the day too; I felt like we were being judged constantly, as we interacted with each other and with the medical students who "mingled" with us. Of course, you ARE being judged the whole day, but it wasn't subtle here." -Posted 09/15/2013 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I'd had an answer prepared for the two questions that BOTH interviewers asked: 1) Describe a mistake you made and what you learned and 2) Describe a team experience that went well (/poorly) and why." -Posted 09/15/2013 | Report Response
