4 out of 10
At the school
"Medicine/Duke Specific: Why Duke? Why medicine? What do you plan to do in the third year? What do you think is the most difficult thing about being a doctor? "
"General Interview Questions: If you could have dinner with anyone...? What do you do in your free time? What do you think will be important issues in the upcoming presidential election?"
"Specific to my application: What policy related issues are most important in healthcare? You've already switched from business to medicine... What might you tell someone who thinks you will at some point switch from medicine to another career?"
"Looked at Duke website, read interview feedback"
"Unique Curriculum. Only one year of basic science (very streamlined), the rotations in the second year, an entire year free for research or pursuing a joint degree in the third, elective in the last. "
"Though the students seemed happy to be at Duke, they did not seemed thrilled to be giving tours, fielding questions, etc. Perhaps it was the time of year."
"There was a lot of downtime during the day. We arrrived at 10, my first interview wasn't until 3."
"The interviews were very casual. The only thing that made one of the interviews a little more stressful than expected was that one of the interviewers was so quiet and spoke so slowly.... it was really hard to get a conversation rolling and to sense what type of impression you were making. I talked to a handful of people that also felt this way."
