At the school
"do you want to do academic medicine?"
"what was the last book you read?"
"list the positives/negatives of medicine"
"Can't remember. Know your application inside and out; I had to explain my personal statement almost line by line. Be prepared for some unexpected questions. I was not asked "Why Stanford" or "Why medicine" or "Tell me about yourself"."
"Compare your two research projects."
"Read Stanford website, read SDN."
"Campus is nice. Weather was perfect. Admissions staff were very friendly and helpful. Financial aid is unbelievable. I love the free pen!"
"The Student Lounge had a weird odor. I'm sure the library is worse but we didn't get to see the inside of it."
"We took pictures for the facebook. Practice your smile before you get to the interview. =)"
"Great school. Lots of opportunities (and incentives) for research and community involvement. Housing is mixed with other grad students. Outstanding match list. Seems like students are happy but overworked (lots of in-class time)."
