At the school
"Why do you want to be a doctor?"
"Have you thought about any particular specialty you are interested in?"
"Where do you see yourself in 10 years?"
"It was pretty standard conversation. They asked me about what I've been doing since I graduated three years ago and were very interested in my travels."
"What do you think about stem-cell research? (from the student interviewer - I had done some of this research in college. Forming a cohesive, concise answer was more difficult than I thought it would be.)"
"Read SDN, website, brochures."
"The faculty seemed so relaxed and pleasant, engaging the applicants and trying to make us as comfortable as possible. I like the fact that rotations start the spring of 2nd year; the facilities, of course, are outstanding; there seems to be a lot of flexibility in the curriculum, more so than at other schools."
"The "group assessment" done by current 4th years - they sat with us in the room and looked at us expectantly, and we were supposed to ask questions while they scoped out our personalities. I'm not really sure what the objective was. "
"No big surprises."
"My faculty interviewer was, by far, the most relaxed, no-pressure interviewer I've had. He put me entirely at ease. Overall, I really enjoyed my day here."
