"If there's one thing I could tell the Admissions Committee about you, what would it be? (They never straight out asked me why I wanted to become a physician, so I used this question to let them know)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, website, the briefings in the morning are really helpful..and I would take a glance at your personal statements because they more than likely have read this before interviewing you (both of my interviewers had things highlighted on my statements which they asked me about)" Report Response

"The fact that I'd have to be deployed." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I think there are about 300mph winds here (jk)..but seriously you're probably just going to have to suck it up. You can leave your coats and whatnot in the admissions office while you tour around (you hardly have to go outside)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The whole interview day does run from about 8:15 to 4. Overall, I would say it was a very positive experience. I really feel conflicted now because there are really high points to coming here and also really low points (like moving around). Let me just say that most likely, they're not going to ship you to Iraq or some other cesspool of violence unless there is a major war going on..otherwise you do have options for where to go (like San Diego,CA and Pensacola, FL)..so it really comes down to whether or not this place is right for you..I'm also the type that gets really nervous before interviews, but trust me!, it's really not that bad, no surprises" Report Response
