What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had learned more about the types of clinical rotations offered so that I was prepared to ask questions about them." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Both interviews (one student and one with faculty member) were low stress, and they're really just trying to get to know you as a person. I wasn't prepared for one of the faculty member's questions b/c she discussed what she did for awhile and then asked me if I had any questions about what she described--so pay attention! It's a good idea to have a few questions ready. It doesn't hurt to request their card at the end if you can remember, to thank them later. Also, try to squeeze in things about yourself in your responses that you think are important--I felt like there was much I didn't get the chance to say when the interviews were over, and that left me uneasy."
