Open file

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"If you had an ethical problem with what the hospital administration wanted you to do, how would you handle it? (For those of you who are suddenly panicked that the interview is hard, this was as bad as it got. All of the others were very generic and straight-forward)." -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Why Baylor?" -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Tell me about yourself. (Generic, but it let me steer my interview, which I appreciated)." -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"What is the best and worst days of your life?" -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"See above -- all sorts of memories flashed through my head, I could not think of one specific day." -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, just talked to myself aloud" -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone seems really happy and friendly. The facilities are outstanding, and there are a number of opportunities to be had. Furthermore, if you're interested in peds, this is THE place to be. Apparently, you can avoid the match and stay at Baylor if the director of peds likes you, or something to that extent. Also, the tuition here is ridiculously cheap for a private school (or any school for that matter), and you can become a Texas resident after a year if you're out of state. An amazing place." -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much. They kept talking about the miserable parking, but being from So. Cal, I'm very much used to that." -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the interview counts for 30% of your admission status. Also, they rank you at 5pm of your interview day, so yeah. " -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pretty lax and straightforward. My student interviewer didn't read my app until I got there while my faculty interviewer had some specific questions from me. They were both very nice and left me with a very positive feeling. Seriously, if I leave Cali, this is where I would go (if I get in)." -Posted 09/09/2005 | Report Response
