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)?

"Almost nothing was directly asked. I basically engaged in two separate, long conversations. To be honest, I don't even know if the interviews were supposed to be open or closed file! (Not sure whether this is a good or bad thing in retrospect)." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Why would I possibly be interested in joining an ethics committee or IRB (an eventual goal of mine)?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Nothing at all." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This website, UConn website, previous interview experiences." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Quite a bit. Systems-based curriculum, PBL, minimal lecture time (and the PBL session on the tour, while rudimentary, was still cool). The facilities surprised me by how nice they are, particulary since it's a state school. Better-than-expected avg board score (220 for Step 1), students seem fairly competitive for resident match. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing I can think of right now... Farmington isn't the most happening place I guess." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I've interviewed at quite a few places, and UConn is at the top of my list. I'm not really sure why this school doesn't get more respect (good curriculum, good facilities, MSTP-funded) because it seems like a great place to attend school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really liked this school (see comments below). I think it would be a great place to study medicine, for a variety of reasons. Connecticut residents are lucky this is their state school." Report Response
