What was the most difficult question?

"What would you do if you weren't accepted into medical school this year? The most difficult, because if you're paranoid like me, you read this question as: you're not getting in here. Hard to swallow because I want to go here." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, read school website, went over applications/essays" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"There is definitely a real sense of community there. Everyone was so friendly and they all seemed happy to be there. They have a quiet confidence about themselves which I found very impressive - they don't even have student ambassadors - the tours are given by students who sign up wanting to give them. Overall a good choice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"This was the most stressful of all the interviews I had. It seemed like they asked about every weak point on my application. I hope it was tough love, because I really liked the school. Also, some of the questions seemed kind of standard-issue." Report Response

"See above" Report Response

What are your general comments?
