What was the most interesting question?

"What are your concerns if the U.S. invades Iraq - part of a long, interesting discussion about the potential war and the U.S.'s foreign policy - the faculty member seemed really interested in talking politics and my responses." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What do you hope for Canada for the future? - how much more vague a question can you get? Also I was grilled on healthcare, which I wasn't expecting having read the accounts on this site. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This site, Ian Wong's premed site, Queen's website, reviewed my autobio sketch and my essay, did practice questions with friends." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The new Clinical Education Centre where the interview was, along with the Clinical Skills Program as described to me by the med students - basically it's early exposure to patients in a beautiful new building that looks like a hospital but is completely dedicated to teaching. Also Kingston as a city was a lot nicer than I remembered, ie, a lot more urban (at least in the teeny tiny downtown area around campus)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"After hearing everyone go on and on about how their interview was like a casual conversation, I was disappointed that mine wasn't at all like that. Half of the time was spent chatting about stuff on my sketch, but then the rest of the time I was being interrogated about healthcare and world politics." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That my interview would be atypical compared to what I'd read of other people's interviews." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"If I'd been less nervous and more relaxed I would have done better - been less rambling and tongue tied. Overall, I know it's easier said than done, but my best advice is to take it easy, don't let yourself get too nervous, and be prepared for the unexpected." Report Response
