What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Why Morehouse?" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"What were your academic weaknesses/strengths?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"There were no particularly thought-provoking questions; the most interesting question was probably "What was the most interesting/daring thing you've ever done or tried?"" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Ironically, I wasn't as prepared for the "why do you want to be a doctor" questions as I thought. You always have in your mind why, but it would have been much more helpful to go over what exactly to say. It was hard to answer her question of "Why would you make a good doctor?"" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over the student interview feedback website, my secondary and AMCAS apps, and the school's history, mission, objectives (VERY HELPFUL to know their primary care mission and objective to serve the underserved). Also read the wall street journal, new york times, etc. to stay on top of current health care policy issues, but there was NO question whatsoever that had anything to do remotely with health care issues, gladly!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"All of the M1 and M2 students were very friendly to us and stopped by to talk to us on their way to/from classes. Also, the way the students all spoke highly of the classes and professors was impressive. They all emphasized that there really is no competition between peers like there definitely was during undergrad, and that you don't have those types of students who are so concerned about what you got on your exam and that everyone really works cooperatively. I was also very impressed with the diversity I saw on campus. I came expecting a 100% African American student and faculty population, thinking that "historically black" meant 100% black, and was pleasantly surprised to see that while approx. 75% of the campus is Black, there were White, Latino, Korean, Indian, international, and other ethnic backgrounds represented in the students and faculty. I also got to see a bit of Atlanta that night and it positively reinforced Morehouse as one of my choices." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour of campus was extremely short and many of the buildings seemed to be locked or closed off." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It was my first interview and I only wish I had been more relaxed going into it. Don't treat interviews like going to an exam!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it went well, although it took a few questions for my interviewer to crack a smile. She seemed slightly antisocial at first and it seemed to be difficult to get HER to relax! But eventually, after we finished talking about stuff like my academic record and why I want to be a doctor, we both loosened up and spent the rest of the time talking casually." Report Response
