"You told us about your ideas on pulmonology in rural areas. Perhaps you could elaborate why a town of 600 would be in the need of the services of a pulmonologist? (this was the dour interviewer that asked me this)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This site, Kaplan's book, rehearsal with my dad." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The staff and students were very friendly. If you go, make sure you meet Angie in the admissions office--real nice woman. I got to see the problem based learning group in action because the systems' kids were taking their block tests. The anatomy lab sounds great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Didn't get to see the anatomy lab because of the tests. While two of the interviews were nice, the other was rather dry/dour. Never smiled--but I just kept right on going." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How quaint the town is. People will let you out on the roadways (except near the Super Walmart). People in the town are very friendly, especially to the students there. Also, the town's main road is a perpetual traffic jam. Oh, and stay at the General Lewis Inn--absolutely wonderful place--wished I had stayed there." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pretty good. Don't let the dour interviewer get to you. All the questions are straightforward if you prepare. The interview is not meant to stress you, it is just for them to get to see your personality. And meet the students and the Graduate TA's, because they can give you great information."
