How did you prepare for the interview?

"Bought a nice professional suit. I think interviews are to get a glimpse of who you are as a person, so the only way you can prepare is to be yourself. If I practiced at being someone I'm not, and they let me in based one that, it would suck trying to wear a mask for the next four years. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interviewer was super nice. Thomas Hunt, director of residency programs for family practice medicine. He gave me a tour of his clinic, which was very impressive." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The first time I called for directions the nurse or medical assistant or whoever it was was a stone cold bitch who told me she couldn't give directions. It freaked me out, but then this really nice resident got on the phone and gave me really great dirctions, which of course I lost, so I had to call back and get them again. Maybe that's why I got rejected. I probably seemed like a total flake." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How to get there!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I think the interviewer was so warm and friendly that it almost became a therapy session. I let my guard down and admitted some academic weakness. Maybe he saw that and thought I wasn't ready for the rigor of medical school. Well, this is the second year they rejected me. I give up on this school. They are too stringent. For chrissake, it's only a state school, and not exactly a state known for it's academic standards. I am a nontraditional applicant, which they claim to consider, but I doupt it. Maybe I'll do a residency with UNSOM one day, but I won't attend med school there. It's funny, but I work in the hospital as an RN among their residents, and hardly ANY of them went to American medical schools. Most came from the islands. So I don't understand why their med school is so elitist. " Report Response
