At the school
"Tell me about your family..."
"Tell me about this extracurricular from your application..."
"What do you think about (issue related to one of my undergrad majors--sociology)?"
"At what age did you start to notice that you were brighter than your classmates?"
"SDN, looked at school's website"
"Pretty much everything-- the staff, students, facility, attitude, New Pathway curriculum..."
"I was part of the very first group of interviews, so maybe things weren't quite running smoothly. I ended up missing most of the tour because of an interview.. Also, apparently something like a quarter of the med class went to Harvard undergrad, closely followed by Yale alumni. So much for diversity..."
"Don't apply to or discount Harvard just because it is Harvard... I was pleasantly surprised and liked it a lot more than I assumed I would."
"This was a New Pathway interview. I arrived at 8:15, heard introductory talks, sat/walked around for a couple of hours until lunch, had an abbreviated tour, had an interview (60 min) with a 4th year student, and then had an interview (60 min) with a faculty member. Both were conversational, and the interviewer didn't ask questions that were not related to my specific application-- nothing about politics, the medical system, or ethics, etc. Some other interviewee was actually asked if he owned the Yankees and could only keep three players, who would he keep? Overall, it was the best medical school in terms of location, facilities and general feel out of all that I have interviewed with thus far."
