What was the most difficult question?

"Where do you see yourself in 10-15 years, professionally and personally? (Only awkward b/c not sure myself, but really quite suprised, b/c she was insistent about the latter part.)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read the school's website, read questions from this website, and thought through responces to expected questions. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The teaching and learning facilities. It's apparent that the school invests significant time and resources into developing and maintaining the tools they use to teach. The electronic resources for histology and practice USMLE testing. Also, learning that most of the curricular resources are web acessable (so one could study at home)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Tucson and my interviewer. I've lived in a very large, progressive, and culturally diverse city attending college, Tucson is small and much more homogenous. Also, my interviewer was late and seemed to be having a bad day, and I think she was a little curt because of it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The itinerary: meet at admissions office, orientation w/ an admissions officer, then a 30-5- min interview, lunch with 2 medical students in a lounge, and followed by a short student guided tour. That there are some bright medical students who have spent time outside of Arizona (lived some where else, borne elsewhere, attended school out of state)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was plesent enough yet quite direct. Fine I guess, but I can't compare b/c it was my first interview. Seeing the learning/teaching resources and talking with a current student who got his BS form Duke assured me that the school is able to provide an excellent educational opportunity to learn the medical sciences-especially at a state school price. My comments: Just like for any kind of interview, if you try to stay informed, can relate well with people, know yourself, and really have something to say; then you'll be fine. About my community Dr interview: It was very relaxed and conversational. No 'tough' questions, just one on one with someone who wants to talk about you, medicine, and their own experiences."
