What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

What was the most interesting question?

"If you had a patient who you had been friends with for a long amount of time, and he passed out in front of you because of an amphetamine overdose, would you report him to authorities?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"If you had to choose between your top two choices, how would you decide (essentially what criteria would you use to decide on a school)?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I am obssessive compulsive and printed out ALL of the interview questions from this website. I also spoke to a recent AZCOM graduate in order to find out more specific information about the school. I forgot to review my personal statement and application. I also skimmed an ethics book that had summaries of recent bioethical issues." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The student ambassadors were extremely friendly and approachable. The campus and facilities were nice. I especially loved the anatomy lab. They had all of these flat screen tv's along with a moveable camera that could zoom in on parts of the cadavers. High tech! Wow! The admissions staff and interviewers put me at ease instantly." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that the rotations are preceptor based and not done in teaching hospitals. I am assuming this is because they are a new school and are working on establishing their reputation and rapport with local hospitals." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?
