What was the style of the interview?

One-on-one

What type of interview was it?

Open file

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

"Why Dartmouth? My student host advised me that if you can't survive in a rural environment, this is probably not the school for you. Most of the students here are married/in serious relationships and their mean age is pretty high for med schools. If you are a non-trad, married, love the outdoors, interesting in having kids/raising kids during medical school, this is probably a good fit for you." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Why do you want to come to Dartmouth when you have all those great schools in CA?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Talked to my student host. She was incredibly kind, accomplished and informative." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students were very nice, laid back. The facilities were pretty modern even for an old school like Dartmouth. The small class sizes and how much student-faculty interaction there is (they'll invite you to dinner at their house)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"How rural it was. I don't mind terribly, but I worried a little about diversity of patient population. Interviewers and students assured me that although the patients are racially homogenous (white), their problems are not. They are a tertiary care center so they get plenty of Zebras. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they had cookies in the cafeteria. They give you a decent amount of money in your cash voucher; be sure to get a cookie! The food in the cafeteria is pretty good; something I wouldn't mind eating for a few years." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pretty laid back. My first interviewer was very friendly and he spent part of the time trying to sell the school to me (I'm not a superstar). My second interviewer was less impressed with me and grilled me a little on a few classes that I had taken. " Report Response
