"Would you stay in Indiana after finishing medical school?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing especially interesting. The questions were mostly about my experiences and achievements. Nothing about ethics or world affairs......phew" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The questions weren't difficult, although I felt there were definitely right and wrong answers. Being from Indiana, I was asked if I would stay in the state after medical school. They obviously want their students to remain in Indiana, and answering the question was difficult to do while still be honest." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Browsed their website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The campus is clean and many buildings are either new or newly renovated. The new monorail system is also amazing (when it's complete in a few months)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The regional campus setup is unappetizing to say the least. Having grown up in Indiana, I know where I would like to study and where I would not. I don't need to be placed in a remote location in Indiana for two years." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"IU gives substantial scholarships and lower tuition to in-state students. Being aware of these scholarships sooner would have been helpful." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I felt that IU has done well with their interviewing system. The date was a mass-interview day with about 100 people, although interviews were conducted individually with two interviewers at once. The day was well structured and I didn't spend much time waiting around for the next event. My only complaint with my experience was that the campus tour (guided by students) was half-assed. We saw the lecture rooms and walked around the outside of the campus. However, we didn't see the hospitals (the hospital system is quite large), labs, etc. " Report Response
