"What was the most challenging experience you have had up to this point.

I may seem like your being a tattle-tail but you have to keep in mind that it is a "ethics" question. IE its testing your ability to make hard but ethical question.

What are your general comments?

"The interview went really well. All members of the panel were very friendly. Most questions were based on my personal statement. Other Than that they asked the questions given in the question section. I wasn't asked this question but I heard that they asked the following: Would you turn in a fellow student that you saw cheating in a test? Hint: The answer is "yes". It may seem like your being a tattle-tail but you have to keep in mind that it is a "ethics" question. IE its testing your ability to make hard but ethical decisions. The basis for turning in a an individual that has been cheating would be that this person is passing their classes and obtaining their degree under false pretences and may be a hazard/danger to patients in the future (as they may not know the relevant material). The tour and lunch were nice and the tour guide (a m4 student) was REALLy cool! I also heard they asked questions like: Have you thought about doing the DO (docter of osteopathy) instead of the MD? (I'm not really familiar with the intricate diffrences between a DO and MD degree so I didnt have a good answer for this one). Good Luck ! and thanks for the Help!" Report Response
