"Do you think you're going to like your daily activities as a doctor? (Weird question because who is going to say, 'No, I'm not going to like the daily activities of a doctor.'?)"
"Do you think doctors should be responsible for addressing the under-insured and uninsured population...or is it enough for doctors to give quality care to those who can pay? "
"What would you do if two colleagues of yours were not getting along?"
"read BCM web site, this site, my secondary and AMCAS application"
"the structured day--there was an intro, interviews, tours, a student-panel...plus LOTS of food."
"tours sucked. we just walked around the Texas Medical Center, which is huge, and saw random places."
"That the day would be so exhausting. It was 12-8 pm...which was nice cause it didn't start so early...but it was still so tiring. Also, on the program of the day's events, nowhere did it indicate food would be there...it would've been good to know we'd have food (I wouldn't have lugged around snacks all day)."
"Neither interviewer had read my file. We got to look at the criteria used to "evaluate" us on the interviewer evaluation sheet...and the criteria seemed very specific and in-depth--requiring the interviewer get to know the applicant in a way deeper than the interview time allowed...especially when the interviewer hadn't read the file beforehand and was just asking questions that could be answered from a glance at the file.....so instead of getting to in-depth questions about activities and such, we talked about factual things on the application. OK, the bottom line is that I felt the interviewer was required to make decisions about the appliant's maturity, leadership, etc. that the interview structure did not really allow the interviewer to reveal (relatively)."
