What was the most difficult question?

"Is the reason that you took a year off because you didn't get in last year? (this wasn't hard to answer; but it made me feel like I had to defend myself which was unecessary... other schools have thought it was totally normal and even positive that I took a year off to work)" Report Response

"read this site, read up on ethical issues (although the interviews didn't allow for much time for much of anything)" Report Response

"We didn't see many students, and those we did speak too were not all that enthusiastic; the grading system is 3-2-1-0 which sounds a lot like a b c d to me" Report Response

"We walked into the cadaver lab about 20 minutes before the interview and a doctor was sawing through a skull- just be mentally prepared if you have not seen this before" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall this is a nice school and I don't mean to convey such a negative opinion, its just that the interviews were so short and the format of rotating from one to the other was stressful... it was hard to feel like anyone got to know me." Report Response
