"Tell me everything you want me to know about yourself (this was asked during the student interview, because they have no knowledge or background about you, aside from your name and state of residency)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read AMCAS, UPitt brochure, talked to student host, read SDN" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The nice, welcoming, personal, and trusting environment cherished by faculty, staff, administrators, and students. My faculty interviewer treated me with a lot of respect, and was very positive!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Class diversity isn't the best, but it's decent. There were no other minorities interviewing on the same date, and only 4 females and about 12-15 males. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The structure of the interview date wasn't clear to me. The faculty interviewer had my personal statement, but my student did not. It was much easier to establish a conversation with my faculty member, but it went okay with the students. Also, by the end, you have a meeting with the Dean of Admissions, and she wants to know if you are dying to go to their school or not. She asked only one, but yet very important question: How do you see Pitt as the option for your medical education?" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Excellent! Great, I just wish the class and school was a bit more diverse." Report Response
