"Why are you a leader? How do you deal with stress? -Generic and expected but still ambiguous in my opinion." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, shined my shoes." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Student Learning Center, simulated patients, student tour guides, overall facilities, overall friendliness...lots. Also, the AC meets Friday (3 days) and we should receive notification by next week. I'm a big fan of not waiting!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Dorms looked miserable, as did "exercise" facilities (although a new center is apparently nearly complete). The location in the city is bad and I'm not a fan of NO in general (conversely, the opportunity to train at Charity is tough to deny)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really, but I was more impressed with their facilities than LSU-S, and I liked LSU-S." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"2 open-file, 1 blind interview. As noted with the other experiences, it was extremely comfortable and nonconfrontational. My undergrad grades were horrible and while everyone asked about them, it was not a focus. I was inevitably nervous but the staff does everything they can to make you comfortable. The interviewers were complimentary and one stated he'd recommend me favorably. Just go, be honest and be yourself." Report Response

Student
