In a group

What type of interview was it?

Closed file

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Tell us about yourself (this is not an easy question to answer by any means, I felt as though I was simply re-stating my personal statement and they could not have learned anything new from this question, but it had to be answered anyway). " Report Response

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

"Ethical question about a person wanting to be removed from a ventilator but the family wanting him to stay on. I've found that there is no right or wrong answer to an ethical question, just a consistant one. Make sure you do not contradict yourself." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Will I continue to train and race triathlon while in medical school." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"About being home schooled and the effect it had, specifically the transition to a public school." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What do you see your role being as a first year medical student (tough question because you do not want to sound as though you are going to become the first year dicatator, but at the same time they want to know that you can be a leader and are confident in yourself)?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, school's website, my application, mock interview (try to do this if possible, the interview setting is a little strange given that it is not a conversation but a question/answer session)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The campus was amazing! Brand new with state of the art facilities and technology. The students seemed to be extremely happy to be there and were more than willing to help with any questions we had throughout the day. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Everyone says the heat, but it did not bother me that much. Honestly, I was very impressed with the entire process." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Probably the biggest thing was that the head of admissions told us that they ACCEPT 300-350 students out of 500 interviews to fill 140 spots (they just play the numbers). If you have an interview, your chances are better than originally thought! Also, the Glendale area is beautiful! Coming from Colorado, I expected a flat desert and could not convince myself that I wanted to leave the mountains; but they have mountains in Arizona (shows how much I know about geography)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was as laid back as an interview can be. I really do hope to be accepted, this school is now my number one choice but was number two before the interview." Report Response
