"Tell me about your family."
"Tell me about your research."
"When in your life did you seriously decide on a medical career?"
"Do your parents ever feel that your pursuit of a medical career will interfere with retaining your culture?"
"None. It was the most awesome interview, very laid back and welcoming."
"Re-read my application, Looked over P & S curriculum, Thought of some interesting questions to ask"
"My interviewer was AWESOME, Dr. Stephen Nicholas. If you get him, you'll love him too. Very personable, friendly, down-to-earth, not intimidating at all! "
"The dorms!!! Yuck!"
"My interview experience was awesome. That Dr. Nicholas made me feel so comfortable. We spoke about everything BUT medicine. He only asked 5 questions, and not one of them addressed academics or the MCAT. It also helped that he had a lot of the same interests that I have (he helps to run a pediatric AIDS program in the Dominican Republic, and I have done a lot of work there). Just be yourself, don't try to give your interviewer an answer you think he/she wants to hear. Be genuine, open, and honest, and I promise you will love your interview. Also, make sure you prepare some interesting questions for your interviewer. 15 minutes of my interview were allotted specifically for MY questions."
