What was the most interesting question?

"Hmm... trying to think of an even remotely interesting question. Nope can't." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Researched the health care system, read a medical ethics books, mock interview, practice questions, introspection" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The video was funny and the students seemed to really love their school. The program also impressed me, although it seemed like way too much lecture time first year." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview itself. My interviewers seemed disinterested and the questions were simply read of a list. There was no dialogue whatsoever and I never felt at all comfortable." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The pressure associated with a closed-file interview where the panel asked no supplementary questions. I should have taken half the interview to answer the "tell us about yourself" question because really that was the only one that would allow them to get to know you. Also, that everyone would get asked the same questions, even at the interview two weeks later. To me this just doesn't seem fair." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Well if it's not obvious from the preceding comments my experience was largely negative. The day itself was very well organized and the students were friendly, but my specific interviewers were stone-faced and disinterested ." Report Response
