At the school
"What do you want to tell me about yourself?"
"Why Johns Hopkins?"
"What kind of research can you see yourself doing at Johns Hopkins? (Difficult because I have no particular interest in research.)"
"Viewed this website, looked at a Johns Hopkins viewbook."
"Everyone said that the teachers are excellent and very willing to help the students in any way possible."
"Certain events seemed to lack organization. At lunch we all had assigned seats, but many of the doctors and medical students just took random seats. I ended up with a couple other interview candidates and one MD/PhD student who hardly talked."
"My day ended at 3:30 p.m., even though they said to plan to stay until 5 p.m."
"Very informal. They have constructed a new building where the Admissions Office is now housed; a great deal of time is spent in one room of that building simply talking to 4th year medical students. They do have a voice in the admission process, but it is not high stress by any means. Unfortunately, it does become tedious making small talk for almost two hours. Entirely too much time is spent in that one room. I was impressed by the doctors who I met, many of whom were teachers. However, I was not particularly impressed by the campus or facilities. A small recreation center, a poor dorm hall, etc."
