"Asked about my research and volunteer work. Asked about my recommendation letters. "
"What am I most proud of? Why not MD/PhD?"
"What qualities did I I like in physicians I shadowed? Why did I take certain gen ed courses in college?"
"Do I feel McDonald's should be held responsible for our overweight society? If I was a car what color would I be?"
"Explain my research work in non-scientific terms."
"SND. The Mayo web-site. My application and personal statement."
"The fact that they cared enough about us to interview only 2 students at a time vs a large group of students. That we met for a long period of tiem with the Dean of Admissions. The faculty and staff were all so cool and nice. The faculty and staff knew all the students. I was allowed to observe the anatomy disection lab. I loved the faculty member that I interviewed with. I felt like we could have talked all day. "
"The student interview was somewhat dry with very standardized questions. He was late and hardly looked over my file and my qualifications that I was most proud of instead he asked me political questions and spent forever explaining my research work in common terms. They were good questions I have never had before, but I don't feel he got to know me to the same extent as the physician interviewer."
"Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience. There were 2 interviews a physician admission committee member was awesome and an M4 student. We received a lot of individual attention that made me feel like they really cared about me personally. "
