"What sets you apart from everyone else?" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Name your favorite 3 traits about yourself. (I started talking about 1, then went off on a tangent, and this question just kind of fell by the wayside. But hey, it's a conversation, not an interrogation!)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Not a specific question, but one of my hour-long interviews was given by an anesthesiologist who took me around the OR. Yes, I got out of my suit and scrubbed in. We walked around and watched about 8 different surgeries, and it was an incredible experience. He introduced me to the surgical teams very nonchalantly as they were performing their surgery! The interviewer was amazingly friendly and open too; since we didn't have an opportunity to really talk in the OR he finished his interview with me over the phone later that week." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None were difficult, but the one that was probably most commonly asked question was "what do you bring to the table?"" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Made sure my suit fit. Get alterations done well before your interview date!!!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"This interview was for the junior honors medical program. There is a stigma of extreme competitiveness associated with this program, but all the people I met were very outgoing and friendly. Also, the interviewers were all very personable and very very friendly. I love the University of Florida, this medical school is truly one of the best when it comes to student-professor relationship." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much. It was a well-organized day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I think I spent so much time researching UF Med and JHMP that my bases were pretty much covered. One surprise was that one of my interviewers could not make it in so another interviewer had to fill in. No big deal, just be prepared for changes of plan and go with the flow." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"For all future Junior Honors applicants (BS/MD over 7 years), just enjoy your interview day, and NEVER panic! People do get in! :)" Report Response
