What was the most difficult question?

"Because it was closed file, both my interviewers actually focused all of their questions around my experiences unlike some of the other interviews people have written about on SDN... no ethics questions and no real clinical problem-solving." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Studied up on current issues, especially the tort reform stuff going on in Nevada right now, did a mock interview at my school, and just read over SDN." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I actually had to interview at the Las Vegas campus, which is where I am from, so I wasn't really surprised with anything. I will hopefully visit the home campus at Reno sometime soon. The doctor and student I interviewed with were both extremely friendly and genuine which helped me to relax." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was hoping to interview in Reno so I could tour the facilities and city, so having to do my interview in Las Vegas wasn't the greatest thing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"For some reason I had thought the interview was open-file so when the doctor asked me for a resume/CV to look at, I didn't have one. The rest of my interview was spent explaining things that she could have just read of the CV. Basically, just take a resume with you just in case they want to take a look at it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I learned more about the school and they way they base their teaching style, which was nice. I am originally from Las Vegas so even though Reno is my state school, it had never been my top choice or anything. Now if I get in, I would definitely think about going there a lot more than before." Report Response
