What was the most interesting question?

"Was asked about the problems facing physicians today. One of them is that doctors cannot give tests / treatments they want because patients cant afford, no insurance, whatever. So I was asked how I would help a patient who I knew needed an MRI to diagnos but couldn't get one. I evaded the question first, but she was insistent on me answering the question as was, patient has no chance of getting this test and you think they need it, what do you do?" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Really friendly environment, students are happy to be there. What really impressed me is that this school is on the upswing, there is SO much construction going on (new Children's hosptial, new labs) they really want to become the place for sick NJ people to go. If you are from NJ, you know that if you are really sick you to NYC or Philly. So it would be cool to be at this school while all this is going on. Plus New Brunswick is a decent / smaller city, not a ghetto huge metrolpolis like other schools." Report Response

"Was for MD/PhD, had the MD interview first, went well except for maybe the difficult question I listed above, that was tough, but the interview was friendly, it was conversational.
