"Describe yourself in one word."
"Best and worst quality."
"Where do you see yourself in ten years?"
"About my experiences as a paramedic working during the May 3rd, 1999 tornado in Oklahoma City."
"If I (the interviewer) was the dean, and there were ten others like you with identical paper apps (i.e. gpa, mcat, classes, lor's, etc.), why would I choose you?"
"knew myself well, SDN forum"
"I can not begin to say how much I like this school. "It fits like a perfect shoe", is probably the most tangible way to put on paper. Everyone is incredibly helpful and happy to be a part of the institution. A big thanks to the faculty and students that went out of their way to make us feel welcome. "
"Nothing negative, but at another school interview, my wife was not only invited, but also participated in separate "orientation-type" events while I was in interviews. Made it seem more family-oriented. While OSUCOM also seems so, it would be a nice touch to add something like that for spouses and significant others."
"Your entire file, minus GPA and MCAT scores, is open to the interviewers. (That information is privy to them after the interview). When reviewing this forum prior to the interview day, the "closed interview" comments by most posters gave the impression that the interviewers would have no knowledge of my file, whatsoever. This was not the case, and thus made for a great interview and some interesting personal questions. "
"Wonderful people. Ph.D. and DO interviewers, as a group, alternated questions that were very conversational and generally "getting to know you" type. No "out of left field" questions. Seemed genuinely interested in my responses and answered my pointed questions about some concerns that I had. "
