What impressed you positively?

"The interview was not at all stressful and it was actually my easier than what I thought and what I prepared myself for (and I was reallly nervous about the interview). There was only four of us being interview that day so we had a lot of time to talk to each other while one of us was being interviewed. Then we saw a video, took a tour, had lunch/asked student tour guides questions, and went home at 2 pm for a 10 am interview." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing, I got my acceptance 9/20, 6 days after my interview (the commitee meets once a month so its a different length of time for everyone) and I plan on going there next fall." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Some of the students told me that next year they are going to combine their class room and problem based learning program and take the best parts of both, which I really like." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"So easy and relaxed. They asked me about a grade, what I do for fun, what I would do if I wasn't a doctor, and about the club that I am the president of, and other questions about myself and things that I do or did. It was very much a conversation, but it is the responsibility of the person being interview to make it that way. When they ask a question make sure you elaborate on what you mean and try to stem that answer into another topic about why you love their school or why they should accept you. Just be careful not to sound to arrogant." Report Response
