"My interviewer was extremely nice and started out by going over some of my experiences and complimenting my efforts since graduating undergrad in '99. He told me a little about himself and then asked me questions regarding some of my experiences. Then he asked me some bioethics questions followed by some discussion about his thoughts. It was my first med school interview and I was completely at ease. Dont stress! MCV just wants to get to know you and how you think. " Report Response
