What are your general comments?

"First, I was interview for MD/PhD. I had the MD interview first, which was tough. The interviewer asked the standard questions but also pushed me on other questions, like the difficult ones I stated above. Wasn't sure if he was seeing what I really knew or what. But the director of the MD/PhD program was really nice, along with the other interviewer for that program. Know your research, you will be asked about it, along with "why MD/PhD". Plus, be prepared for the PhD's to explain their research to you, try to make some questions about it to be interested." Report Response
