At the school
"How would your friends describe you?"
"So your father owns a small business...tell me about it."
"(while we were on the topic of communication) What would you do to ensure good communication between yourself and your colleagues?"
"Nothing immensely interesting. I got the "What is your biggest pet peeve question?" too."
"What do you think is the role of the physician in a world where alternative medicine is becoming more and more popular?"
"Didn't do too much. Read the SDN interview feedback and relaxed. This wasn't my first interview, so I kinda knew the drill."
"The school presents itself so well. I really like the way they emphasize the clinical aspect of medicine. The students were all very happy."
"The lack of a lot of student facilities (i.e. gym). And of course, parking."
"I had an inclination that they were going to hold the admissions committee was going to make the decision the night after our interview, but I didn't know that it was while we were on our tour. By the time we went to the social, they were already done!"
"Baylor College of Medicine is an amazing school that I knew that I would like and I came out liking it even more. The students are calm, are great presenters, and are obviously all intelligent. Being from a non-ivy league school, seeing lots of high tier institutions represented at the interview session was a little intimidating, but everyone's in the same boat. No extensive walks to interview locations, but eat beforehand - the refreshments they serve can in no way shape or form replace lunch. The day starts at noon, which is nice (you avoid a lot of morning rush-hour traffic), but everyone is just tired by the end of the interview and a lot of people left early after their interviews. My interviewers were both really nice, and my second interviewer told me that I would fit in really well at the institution. What a great compliment, so I'm hoping for the best!"
