What was the most interesting question?

"I don't know. My interviewer had a different style from most. He did not look in my file, he relied on the answers from my questions to find out information about me. I'm sure he will look later, however, during the interview, he asked me to start from when I was born and tell him about myself. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"So, if I were to present your file to the admissions committee, and on paper you and someone else looked like twins--you all have very similar grades and experiences--why would we want to select you over the other person?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, the school website, keeping up with current events and issues in medicine" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Pretty much everything. The Admissions Director was very nice and gave us the impression that they wanted to educate us about the medical school process whereas other institutions may just interview and send you home. We were also introducted to many interesting facts about the institution and its success." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The library is not very big at all, however, they made it very clear that if there is a publication that is not available, they are more than capable of obtaining through interlibrary loan. However, the pluses of the school definitely outweighed the minuses." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew from this website that the atmosphere would be relaxed, but it was 10x better than I thought. The 1st year and 2nd year students were extremely friendly and offered honest advice. All of the students that I spoke with love being there and love each other." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"At 10:15AM we were taken to a meeting/conference room and the Director of Admissions gave us a run-down of the school and how our interviews would go. After discussing things with him and asking questions, we were introduced to our interviewers. After the interview, we returned to the conference room, where we met up with the afternoon group of people being interviewed. We then ate lunch, watched 1 or 2 short videos, spoke with two 2nd year students and then separated from the afternoon group. We then were taken on a tour of the facilities by the Director of Student Activities and that was it! It was a great experience!" Report Response
