At the school
"Beta Interviewer asked: why medicine.... what is the biggest challenge facing healthcare....what do you suggest as solution .. tell me about family, siblings etc .. any questions for me"
"Alpha interview was by a student and was much better experience... I could relate with her.....she asked mostly about my life experience what I did and why i did it... based on my answers on AMCAS and their secondary ....any questions for me..."
"None ... all standard questions .... "
"visited Duke website, this website"
"lots of unique cases, patient lab has an artificail human to practice skills on rather than poking each other....and financial aid is awesome for a private school if you can show need...."
"the interview is only 30 min...and by the time you think you are getting started, it is already over"
"the directions are so confusing to the admissions office...... the whole building is a mess so give yourself little extra time to reach there"
"There were 12 of us and in the begining no one was talking and everyone was just sitting quitely with their heads in the handouts...so I thought this is gonna suck big time.. but then it got better by the end of the day .... we had some Dean give a talk about school...then financial aid .... followed by lunch... the med students were not talking in the begining and then we started opening up a bit....we took extra 15 min for lunch and everything was pushed back 15 minutes.....then some of us had interviews and rest went on a tour.... faculty interview was horrible (there were 2 of them but the one I got was not good...he would talk in half sentences and would want me to complete his sentence and answer as well?????) I heard the other one was more friendly...and 2nd interviewer is a studentt which was awesome..... then we ended our day with a tour ... it went ok but be prepared to give yourself little extra time for finding the admissions office."
