At the school
"why would you want to go and work in a third-world country after being heavily trained in world-class institutions such as, for example, Hopkins?"
"if you didn't become a doctor, what other profession would you seek?"
"describe an interesting experience that you have had in one of your clinical experiences"
"who is your idol, and why?"
"do you like being the big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond?"
"read AMCAS, Hopkins secondary and research papers."
"the students seemed very happy and content. i got a sense that they were the most important assets of the establishment: more important than the famous hospital (and its patients) or the nobel-prize-winning faculty and the world-class research projects that are going on."
"the buildings/campus was very dull and ugly. the neighborhood did not seem too safe. we kept hearing of the widely-acclaimed faculty but, apart from my faculty interviewer, we didn't meet any faculty that seemed that top notch."
"both interviews went well. both the faculty and student interviewers were there to listen and were very friendly and approachable. the whole experience ended up being kind of cheesy as the faculty interviewer switched to more of a recruiting tone than an interviewing one. but who knows, maybe that is how he approaches every interviewee."
