What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"They have your essays(not your numbers) so some of them may ask questions about what you have written." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"None...it was one of those "so tell me about yourself" interviews...where after telling about yourself they sorta keep looking at you like "is that it or is there more?" " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Tell me about yourself. It would help if they would have questions after telling about yourself like other schools. Nothing difficult in terms of questions...rather difficult to get a clear idea of who you are in 15 minutes." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Did absolutely nothing. SDN was switching servers so I was in the dark about what to expect." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The free top of the line laptops and palm pilots given to all students(which are upgraded after 2nd yr). The hospital is constantly being renovated and made better. Consequently even though the school has been around since the 1900's, everything looks fairly new. The curriculum is neat, very integrated. Faculty is very responsive to student complaints. ACC basketball is cool and the med students get free tickets to wake games. Housing is cheap. 675 rent for a house across the street. I pay that much to share a room in LA." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wouldn't mind going there. The school seems to offer a good education. However, the Winston-Salem area isn't the most happening place(i'm from cali so i'm jaded). Just doesn't seem like theres much to do there outside of med school. The med school is not on the undergrad Wake Forest campus. The gym inside the med school sux and the undergrad gym is technically not available to med students(however, med students seem to go there to workout and just slip in). The south is really really slow." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Wish sdn was up so i could get the interview logistics. Didn't matter though...interview is laid back." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was impressed by the school; its facilities, curriculum, technology, faculty, etc. If it was the only school that accepted me I would gladly go without any remorse. However, Winston-Salem just doesn't feel like the place for me so if other opportunities present themselves then I would not go to wake. But if you like the south and don't mind spending four years in a quiet area then consider wake. Good thing the turnaround from interview is pretty quick." Report Response
