At the school
"What do you like and dislike about your undergrad school?"
"What roles did you take in your research? (Both my student and faculty interviewer asked that. It's probably something that comes up a lot at Stanford's interview)"
"How do you see yourself in ten years? (Again, both my interviewers asked that. Stanford states explicitly that it's interested in people who will do more than clinical care, preferably being leaders in a health care field)"
"Nothing really, the questions are rather generic"
"What makes you stand out from all the other applicants? If both you and your friend apply for one spot in med school, who do you think should take the spot?"
"Read up on my research reports (Stanford's big on research experience) and my secondary essays"
"Flexibility in the curriculum (Can take electives in first two years), scholarly concentration, nice and flat campus (like a park), numerous ways to get funded for tuition besides need-based aids."
"Some other people in my interview group seem very hard-core into basic science research, but I'm only moderately interested in it, so I feel a bit out of place."
"The interview is a way to "make sure you are who you are on paper", so there is no set questions for interviewers to ask, I feel that interviewers can easily run out of stuff to ask the applicants."
"Unlike some schools, there are no set directions on where the interviews should go, so depending on your interviewer, it may be easy to run out of stuff to say, resulting in awkward silence. The campus and curriculum are nice, and the students are very friendly (Not snobbish at all). Stanford prouds itself on its flexible curriculum and the financial aids it provides."
