How did you prepare for the interview?

"This website was really helpful, other interview websites, read through my essays (you can use your essay answers in the interviews because the interviewers have not read them!)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are beautiful, the location is great, and they seem to be really into their PBL curriculum. I guess it's older than at most schools, so it's tried and tested." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was cold and rainy. Some of the people from similar undergrad schools seemed a little cliquey. Most first-years live in a dorm - small rooms with no kitchens!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Lots of people forgot to bring umbrellas - you need it for the tour if it's raining." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a lot less stressful than I anticipated. The group interview was not that bad. Sometimes they ask each person the same question (for example, they asked us each to talk about a challenge we faced). They ask one group question - ours was to name 5 attributes a med student should have when they graduate. There is also a 15 minute one-on-one session with the dean or assistant dean of admissions. Be ready to tell them what you want the admissions committee to know about you." Report Response
