What was the most interesting question?

"I wasn't even asked questions by the faculty interviewer really. We just talked about him for most of the interview and I asked the questions. The student interviewer asked the standard questions like why medicine and what do you do as a hobby. Here's the thing, I thought my faculty interview went bad because we spent the entire time talking about his life and acomplishments. He was super friendly, but I didn't know what he could possibly write on my evaluation because I never really got asked questions. But I got acepted. Contrast this with Albany's interview in which I prepared so much for ethics questions and talked rather well in my opinion for a total of 3hrs over two interviews only to get put on the alternate list. The interview process in general seems a little screwy to me." Report Response
