At the school
"Why Duke? Why med?"
"What makes you different from someone coming straight from college?"
"What do you think the third year is like? What's the purpose of it?"
"What do your friends say about you going into medicine?"
"a question about a reserach project i did for like 3 months a loooong time ago... and I wasn't asked about the research I've done for a long period of time (and which is way more interesting)"
"read duke website, sdn, my application"
"The first year lecture hall is amazing! It's so comfy and even has little speakers at every desk. The lectures are videotapes and available online. The students were pretty nice. I remember some SDNers saying the students seemed elitest... I didn't get this feeling."
"When they told us the avg MCAT was 36 and avg gpa was 3.8, I was tempted to walk out :) I have no idea how I got an interview at Duke..."
"Well, I didn't know I was supposed to pre-arrange a shuttle pick up from the airport. So I spent a while looking for a bus to take me to Duke. The shuttle is $25. Otherwise you have to take a cab and that is $31 or $35 or something. Luckily my host came and picked me up after I had been wandering outside the airport for a while :)"
"I was a little stressed out. Duke is an awesome school and I wasn't sure what to expect. The interview questions were't that hard... although it did take me a second to think of answers. They never asked me why my grades were so bad or about all those C's in Orgo. I guess they assume if you received an interivew, your smart and have decent volunteer activites. Overall, I really liked Duke. They really tried to make the day go as smoothly as possible. I would love to go there!"
