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

"What will I do to prepare for next year if I don't get in this time around?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Lots of questions about my non-traditional high school situation (several schools, early grad) and early college entrance/grad (I was 19 when I graduated college.) One interviewer seemed somewhat critical of this, but she also seemed interested and rather perplexed." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"How well I think I could do on the MCAT if I took it a second time (I had a great score on one part, but slightly below average on the other two)." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Practiced with other pre-med students, talked to an interview coach (VERY HELPFUL!)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I was already pretty well-informed about UK so there weren't any big suprises; it's my first choice, so I am already very positively impressed." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"About the school: terrible parking (which I already knew) About the interview: interviewees were brought back from their 2nd interviews whenever they were done; mine went rather long, and I missed a majority of the lunch with students (I was there for about 5 minutes of it, it seemed disorganized.)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That not all the interviewers would be equally qualified; one of them, although a very nice person, seemed to be somewhat in the dark about important things like the MCAT, and obviously hadn't had much experience interviewing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"One positive, one slightly negative interview. Lunch and subsequent tour were disorganized; general feeling was pretty laid back, although when we all first got there it was tense/quiet." Report Response
