What impressed you negatively?

"Where shall I begin? I thought my interviewers were really very poor and I was frustrated by their questions and lack of real interest in me or what I might bring to medicine. The first one was a stress interview and it was a nightmare. Intensely personal questions about my personal life and yet, the interviewer didn't seem very impressed by my answers and seemed to doubt what I was saying. (??) I was so upset by the interviewer and their questions I started to forget things and began to feel like I was lying when in fact I was answering as honestly as I could. Awful. The interviewer did not ask me any questions about my clinical experience. The second interviewer was not much better, but at least I didn't feel under attack like I did with the first one. I was really shocked by this as I had thought that Albany was a great school that really supported its students. I was still shaking for a couple of days afterwards. I really liked the facilities and the school in general but I was really turned off by the interviews." Report Response
