What was the most interesting question?

"Why did you do your leadership work? [I had mentioned one of the organizations I co-founded and he wanted to know the impetus behind it.] Not really a surprising question, but there weren't really many questions asked since we just talked most of the time. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None. No research or ethics questions. Like other people have noted, the interviewers generally just want to feel you out as a person, not quiz you on knowledge or current events. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Looked over personal statement, current medical and medical ethics issues (just in case), and this site. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The overall feel was good. The students were raucous in the lounge during lunchtime, but that showed they were all happy to be there and enjoying themselves. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. There are handouts given when you arrive. You could bring a pen if you think there's something you need to write down. (I didn't.)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Most of the questions were usual, but the conversations were really lively. I lucked out with a great interviewer and we clicked right away. I got his business card and he invited me to visit him at the OR. This is my second time applying here. Previously, the faculty interviewer was friendly too. (My community physician interview back then wasn't quite as nice. We'll see how it goes this time.) Bottom Line: Just be you and try your best to relax. " Report Response
