At a regional location
"Tell me about (insert AMCAS activity). (This was repeated frequently)"
"What do you know about stem-cell research?"
"What do you know about stem cell research?"
"If you were engaged in stem-cell reasearch and the government banned such research, would you move to England, where it is legal?"
"AMCAS, secondary, admissions books, mock interview feedback"
"The alumni was a part of a seemingly very impressive practice and had some good information about Duke."
"The interviewer didn't have any information about me, yet he was supposed to have received info from Duke. I had to provide the paperwork such as AMCAS, secondary, transcript for him to review."
"That much of the interview was going to be the interviewer reading my credentials."
"By the time I heard back from Duke about an interview, all of the spots in Durham were filled so I had to attend a regional interview. It was definitely an advantage as far as travel was concerned since I live in Florida, but I didn't get any information about the campus or facilities. Duke was supposed to send information about me to the alumni interviewer but had not, so I had to provide documentation. The interview wasn't so much of an interview for most of the time. The format was basically the interviewer reading the materials I provided on-site (AMCAS, secondary, transcript) and occasionally asking me about certain activities. There was a lot of dead silence time. I was thankful that he was able to provide me with some good information about Duke's research year."
