How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, practiced answering questions with a good friend and then someone who i didn't know as well. (because of the open-ended nature of the discussion format, it would be very helpful to practice answering questions and discuss your reasons for wanting to go into medicine with someone beforehand)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i was interviewing for post-bacc, which I understand is basically structured like an actual med school interview. I just didn't get the complete tour, and perhaps the questions weren't as specific when it concerned medicine. but overall, it's very low stress. definitely prepare and take it seriously, but enjoy the ride, because they will try to make you feel very comfortable."
