What was the most difficult question?

"A question about whether I would "burn out" in medical school (the question came from something I mentioned in my personal statement)." -Posted 10/04/2010 | Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Looked over SDN's Interview feedback section, read EUSM's website, tried to think of any and all weaknesses in my application in order to anticipate tough questions, thought about answers to all typical questions (tell me about yourself; why medicine? etc.). I did not script answers because I wanted to be as natural as possible during my interviews. However, I did make a list of the things I wanted to convey about myself for the various questions I expected them to ask." -Posted 10/04/2010 | Report Response

"Everything: the admissions staff, the deans, my interviewers, my fellow group interviewees, the current students, the campus, the facilities, the curriculum, Atlanta." -Posted 10/04/2010 | Report Response

What impressed you negatively?
