What are your general comments?

"The interview was SO laid back. I was interviewed 2 times at 30 min each. One interviewer was a third year and was totally cool and easy. The other interviewer was a faculty member and was even easier. In short, I think that if you get an interview this early that the school is looking for reasons to accept you. There were no hard, tricky or ethical questions. They really do just want to get to know you on a personality level. As one interviewer told me, "Well, the committee agrees that you are strong enough numbers and involvement wise to attend UK. That's why you have an interview. My role is to make sure you have the patient interaction skills that would make you a great doctor." So, just talk about yourself and why you want to be there and you'll do fine." Report Response
