How did you prepare for the interview?

"MSAR, JHU Booklet, SDN, Talked to current students & Previous interviewing experience." -Posted 01/24/2009 | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"My expectations for JHU were already so high, that it would have been hard for me to be more impressed. However, it is hard to argue with the opportunities that students are given here, the current hospital system as well as the new additions, the communication between students and the faculty, the financial aid for students, and the training that comes with being a JHU medical student. They do these things so well already, that sometimes it is taken for granted." -Posted 01/24/2009 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Baltimore is not for everyone. Ask many questions about this city, get to know both the good and bad, and decide for yourself if it'll be a good fit." -Posted 01/24/2009 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there would be 16 of us there!" -Posted 01/24/2009 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I went into this interview already knowing some of JHU's greatest strengths and was pleased to see that most are true. You may have a larger interview group like me, but the way that they split us up for specific activities worked well in my opinion. The lunch, and subsequent chat with fourth year students before interviews can be a little awkward at first, but if you have good things to ask and state, you'll be fine. My faculty interviewer was very nice, had access to my whole application, and had a set list of questions already. My student interviewer was very casual but thorough. Just relax and let your true personality shine forth. I had a good day and left with many reasons to consider Johns Hopkins seriously if given the chance." -Posted 01/24/2009 | Report Response
