At the school
"Most ?s were general in nature and came straight from my AMCAS or secondary, know your app well and you should be find for the majority of ?s they will ask."
"Why is the Hopkins program a good fit for you?"
"nothing too difficult :) Relax and you will be just fine! I got in, so I know what I am talking about The ad-com people are super-nice people, they just want to get to know ya a lil better."
"none really... watching everyone try to stand out in front of the fourth years was entertaining/ineteresting though."
"My faculty interviewer wanted me to explain some organic synthesis research I had done and what implications it had in furthering scientific knowledge... so if you have done any research, brush up on the details of your experiments."
"www.interviewfeedback.com, read over web-site (look at some of the awesome research they have beeb doing there! it will give you goose bumps it is soo cool), read over AMCAS and secondary... practiced mock interviews with friends"
"EVERYTHING about Hopkins was awesome, the students and faculty were probably the most impressive. Very accomplished yet still very down to earth, nice people."
"Reed Hall kind of reminded me of a jail cell... and the area immediately surrounding the medical center seemed kinda scary... but otherwise, Baltimore is beautiful and under-rated. Head down to the inner harbor and visit the undergrad campus while you are there!"
"Travel to the school - you can take the light rail to the subway to get to the school and save some $$ (you can get to the school for $2.50 instead of paying a cab $25-30), the subway drops off right by Reed Hall and the med center. Head to the international terminal at the airport and buy a light rail ticket for about $1.25 (? I think) and head toward Hopkins Hospital, at the Lexington Market stop, get off of the train and walk about 1.5 blocks to the subway entrance, buy a ticket ($1.25), and take the subway to the last stop - Hopkins Hospital. *NOTE* I would not reccomend walking through Lexington Market after dark, especially if you are by yourself... I think you can also catch the subway @ Penn Station, but I don't know if that area is any better."
"Hopkins is such an awesome place, don't believe the rumors you hear about the school being super competitive, that might be true at JHU undergrad, but the med students here seem like a nice, cooperative, and cool bunch! Relax and enjoy the interview experience, and don't try too hard to catch the attention of the fourth years when you are sitting around together.... they just want to make sure you aren't a wallflower (don't be anti-social.. talk to the people around you) or otherwise a wierdo (don't try TOO hard to be the center of attention.... you might come off as obnoxious) Just be yourself and R-E-L-A-X! Good luck!"
