What was the most interesting question?

"How did my last interview go? My reply- it went well. The interviewers reply- they aren't always as they seem. Pretty interesting response- wouldn't you say!" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"How have you been impressed and how have you been disappointed with medicine? Where are the best doctors? (I had to ask for clarity- b/c between you and me, I thought the question was a bit broad). I thought this questions were tough b/c they are more subjective, opinion oriented questions. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Prepared several questions with an outline of my responses, read health section of newspaper, perused medical websites (incl. osteopathic) and the school’s site. Funny thing is that they only asked me one or two of those questions. They asked me more questions about my experiences- from my personal statement and essays. I think that the chance of you being asked medical ethics/situational types of questions will be greater if your ps/essay do not evoke much interest or thought from the interviewee. As a matter of fact, the interviewer who so kindly told me that things aren't as they seem, didn’t quite get to ask me the degree of "tougher" questions which he/she may have intended- we were out of time! I was saved by a knock on the door. I’m just kidding. But it pays to be prepared for ANYTHING!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"This is an incredibly friend place. The staff was attentive and responsive to questions. They aimed to make the experience as comfortable as possible. We had lunch at a coffee shop/cafe with two med students who provided candid feedback to questions and accompanied us on the tour. Additionally, the school boasts technologically outstanding labs and teaching aids. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. I was just a bit disappointed that one of the teaching hospitals located right across the street from the school had closed. It's a private hospital, not affiliated with the school (except that it allows students, residents, etc to come in and learn)... We were assured that this just means a slightly farther commute to their many other teaching facilities." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had been more focused on MY story (i.e. my background, experiences, etc) and just a little less focused on the tougher medical issues/debates. It's also important to keep in mind that the interviewers goal is not to interrogate you, but to evaluate your level of maturity, ability to think on your toes and your motivation (among many other things, of course). Since this school conducts closed file interviews, don’t hang yourself by dwelling on your less that satisfactory O.Chem grade (GPA, MCAT scores, etc). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Terrific experience, great school. " Report Response
