"What do you want to do with the third year at Duke? MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SOME IDEA - everyone in my group was asked this"
"Which of your extracurricular activities will directly make you a better physician? "
"How much do you think doctors should make a year? Do you think doctors make too much? "
"Define "diversity" - why is diversity important in medicine?"
"What is the capital of Mongolia? What do you suppose a rheumatologist does? Do you know which chromosome is trisomic in Down Syndrome? "
"Reviewed AMCAS, looked at stuff on website, talked to student host"
"caliber of facilities, obvious talent/intelligence of students"
"Durham - seems like it has the disadvantages of a city (traffic congestion, crime) without the advantages"
"that there is such an emphasis on RESEARCH; that the interviews were standardized"
"Incredible facilities and talented people, but I also felt like everyone was a little bit arrogant. A great school, but not the best fit for me. "
