"Have you done any teaching?"

"Tell me about you experiences in medicine."
"Nothing interesting at all. Everything off of my application."
"Went over my applications, read feedback on SDN, look at JHU website"
"Driving in Baltimore is rough after the interview (around 5 p.m.). You might want to take a cab."
"We had lunch with a 4th-year student and a faculty member, followed by a tour, then the interviews. One 15 minute interview with a 4th-year and one 30 minute interview with a faculty member. I really enjoyed the students, but the faculty member I interviewed with did not impress me at all. She was not welcoming at all, and I felt like she didn't want to be there. It left me with a bad taste in my mouth. The facilities are good and the atmosphere is obviously top-notch, but I wasn't as impressed as I was hoping to be. The are is not as bad as everyone says, and there is plenty of security around, so that really shouldn't affect a decision. Overall, I guess I just wasn't as impressed as I thought I was going to be."
