At the school
"Tell me about your research and clinical experience."
"What do you do for fun?"
"What are you reading right now?"
"Nothing out of the ordinary was inquired. Interview with faculty was open and interview with student was closed. "
"Do you think you would like living in Baltimore? Being from the southwest, I had never been to Baltimore before. The school is in a bad part of town and I believe the interviewer wanted to know if I was ok with that. Naturally I'm ok with the neighborhood because it is Hopkins after all. But I fear I didn't adequately relay this. "
"Read this website and practiced standard questions (you will not be asked anything suprising). I prepared myself mentally by minimizing distractions prior to my trip east. "
"So many opportunities at Hopkins. Students seem to be very happy and energized about their futures. Great place to become an excellent researcher and clinician. Whatever you want to do in medicine can be achieved at Hopkins. "
"As I have heard, Baltimore is not as fun as other cities. Reed Hall wasn't great. But rent in Baltimore is cheap on the other hand. "
"That I wouldn't be able to sleep in Reed Hall. Loud and uncomfortable. But its a dorm, what did I expect? "
"Fantastic school. Don't sweat the group interview. Its more like a question and answer session with students. Find out as much from them as you can about Hopkins, you will be impressed. "
