What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Jefferson's focus is producing clinicians. Although their research department is outstanding, their main focus is producing clinical doctors rather than researchers. I also learned how few Md/PhD spots there were for next year's class (only 5 out of 229 spots)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was a bit offputting because I was interviewed in the interviewer's apartment. But, once I got to his room the atmosphere was comforting and I felt at ease. The interviewer told me ahead of time that he does not look at the interviewee's file ahead of time, nor does he ask prescribed questions. Essentially he told me to talk and he interjected with questions sporadically." Report Response
