How did you prepare for the interview?

"Briefly looked over my AMCAS application" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Even though I had very difficult interviews, the interviewers really listened to my responses. It felt as though there were a few points regarding me as an applicant that they wanted to probe and I feel that the did an extremely good job at being forceful but respectful. In addition, the faculty interviewer was clearly familiar with my AMCAS application as they asked some very insightful followup questions regarding my PS." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The M4 student that interviewed me was openly condescending. Since this attitude did not mesh with my previous experiences with people associated with MCW, during the interview I forced myself to believe it was an affected persona they assumed." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That while most people report that they have laid-back interviews, it is possible to have a very hard one. If you are one of these people, don't feel singled out because it does not mean that your application is doomed." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was expecting a laid-back interview based on past reports. However, both of my interviewers were quite confrontational and grilled me for the entire duration of the interview. I was continually defending my decision to pursue medicine as a non-trad. My experience seemed to be unique on this day (based on others that I spoke with) so I just wanted to let others know that it is possible to have a tough interview here. (FWIW - I was directly accepted and will be attending here, so there are absolutely no sour grapes with this feedback.)" Report Response
