What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing really. She asked me about how I would solve the uninsured problem. Remember: the school is about underserved, so come up with something about universal coverage or something." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What difficulty or challenge have you faced and how did you deal with it? (I didn't answer because mine was too personal and involved other people, so I didn't feel it was ethical to spill the beans without their permission)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, NY Times" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are actually very nice for such a small and new school. They seem genuinely interested in keeping their students happy. Very friendly staff. Quick turnaround time between interview and decision. They claimed ~1 month for my interview group." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Small class size! LONG classes. Only one interviewer." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"No matter what you read or what else anyone tells you, this school is geared for producing physicians for the underserved. My interviewer had a PhD in pharm/toxicology and she explicitly said that's who they were looking for. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It's a nice school with some big-time people there. You probably won't ever interact with them, but it's still cool to say that the one of the few American doctors to have ever seen smallpox in the wild is at my school! Even if you're not a minority, you should still apply becuase they take a good amount of non-minorities. They are biased towards GA residents, though!" Report Response
