At the school
"Have you ever had to work in a group and what role did you play in the group? Have you ever had to work in a group with someone who didn't agree with you? How do you handle stress? Do you have a good support system?"
"Tell us about your clinical experiences. How do you plan to combine your passion for helping the underserved with you desire to be a pediatrician?"
"Tell us about a difficult time in your life. How did you deal with it and what did you learn from that experience?"
"Who would you pick for Time's Person of the Year and why?"
"same as above"
"SDN, read my file, OSUCOM website"
"Everyone at the school is extremely nice! While we were waiting for our interviews, all the 1st and 2nd year students kept coming in and wishing us luck. They would answer any questions we had and tell us about their experience at the school. The school is small and all in the same building so you don't have to do any walking outside on the tour, which is nice in bad weather."
"The only thing I didn't like about the day was waiting to interview. I got there at 8:00 and my interview wasn't until 11:00, so I had a lot of down time. "
"nothing really, I had visited the school twice so I knew what to expect. For out of staters, though, you might be surprised to know that the school is not in the best part of town."
"The day went really well. You get there at 8:00 and they give you a short overview of the school and you introduce yourself to the other interviewees. (there are 8 total) Then from 9-12, you interview 2 at a time. There are two sets of interviewers and you will interview with one set. My set was a woman D.O. and a man who was a Ph.D. They were very nice and laid back. After the interviews, you eat lunch with the student ambassadors. Ours was catered and we got to eat in the president's board room which was nice. He also came in and talked to us for a while. After lunch, there's a school tour and then a session over curriculum and financial aid. The day wrapped up at about 2:30. Overall, I was very impressed with the school and the people. They are just like family there and you can tell!"
