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

"The questions follow your AMCAS application (since the interviewers know nothing about you)- very straightforward factual questions (although it varies among interviewers I hear)." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"MCG interviews are a little different from a lot of schools in the sense that your interviewers take copious notes on everything you say - so it's not exactly conversational, more "businesslike." One of my interviewers asked very biographical questions - ie tell me about your family, extra curriculars, what did you do in the summer, how many times you taken the mcat, etc etc. So I felt like I was just reiterating my AMCAS application. After the interviewer finished asking questions and stopped writing, I had a chance to talk to her/him and it became a more humane conversation. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Basically you have two interviews - one of those will be with a member of the adcom who will be presenting you, the other with a faculty member who will just write a report. My adcom interviewer was incredibly nice and I was much more relaxed during that interview." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Didn't really." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone is very sweet and friendly and tries to answer your questions as best as possible. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The lunch is after the tour at 1 pm. The day starts at 8:30. So basically by the time you finally have lunch you are at the point of cannibalism. Eat a BIG breakfast and take snacks so you can enjoy your tour. Also - students practice NG tubes on each other. This is the only medical school that does that as far as I know (I think OSHA disapproves of it). The idea of someone who has no idea what they're doing sticking a tube into my stomach is not the most appealing. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The lunch thing...Also augusta is actually pretty if you go by the river. It's not that bad of a place - a very calm quiet town." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a good experience. Definitely MCG is a strong school with a really nice children's hospital. Also the admissions office sends you a thank you letter after your interview which is a nice touch. " Report Response
