What are your general comments?

"We started the day meeting the other interviewees in the waiting room of the admissions office. There is a brief introduction and then a financial aid presentation which in total takes about 25 minutes. There is a lunch that follows. There are MD's as well as medical students at the lunch who are not on the adcomm. They are there to answer questions and are very friendly. Lunch is followed by a quick tour and then back to the admissions office. Once in the admissions office you are joined by several 4th year students who are on the adcomm. They sit and talk with you until the interviewer calls you back. Following the faculty interview, one of the 4th years (who are in the waiting room with you) will take you back into another room for a closed file interview. The rest of the time, you wait for everyone to finish both of their interviews and know it is time to leave when the refreshments are hastily removed from the area. All in all, great interview experience at Hopkins!" -Posted 10/12/2006 | Report Response
