"Tell me about your research in words I can understand."
"What is your favorite book and why?"
"Where do you see yourself 20 years from now?"
"How would you apply the principles of music to medicine? Explain why you think the vocabulary of science is precise. Why do you think the patient asked you, a student who is not a medical doctor, to write down a medical term for her? *related to a shadowing experience."
"Why would you want to continue here (undergrad and med school)?"
"Read my personal statement, talked to 1st years, researched labs at the med school, tried to chill out"
"financial aid!!!, research opportunities, generally the faculty are so nice, students seem smart but not snobbish, and the admissions office is so helpful"
"stressful student interview who second guessed all my responses"
"student interviewers give the most critical interrogations. This is my last interview, thank god, but my blood pressure still increased during my first interview here. i think that it was the sense that my answers were not well received or respected that really got to me. i took a twenty minute walk to recuperate from the interview."
"positive in terms of interview #2, bad experience in interview #1, LONG day"
