What was the most difficult question?

"What was your favorite subject in school besides science? (It was hard to answer because it WAS science. My other interests had nothing to do with other school subjects, but more to do with music and arts). Also, it was hard for me to name ONE influential moment that turned me on to medicine." Report Response

"Read SDN interview feedback" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How happy the students seemed. It was also around 70 degrees while I watched news of the blizzard on the East Coast." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My student interviewer told me it was her first time doing it, so it seemed like she wasn't sure what to ask me. There were some awkward silences, so I felt like I was interviewing her by having to come up with questions to ask her. I guess it was more of a conversation, but since this was my first student interviewer, I still thought that she would be the one leading the conversation. Also, I'm not sure how much diversity there is at the school, it seems like there would be more URM especially in the location." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How expensive this school is, and there isn't very good public transportation so you pretty much need a car if you don't want to live in the dorms." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was very laid-back and I had a lot of time to explore the school in between my interviews. The room numbers are bizarre, so give yourself some time to try and find your interview room. Also, the interviews are usually closed-file, but if you interview with the Dean, it will be open-file (although for me, she still didn't really read my file thoroughly, so it was more like a closed-file interview with her). The food was not that good, but they did give us a menu in the morning to pick what we wanted. Like everyone else suggests, definitely check out the embryological museum, it is very cool. The student tour guide took everyone out to the bar afterwards to keep up with tradition. :) " Report Response
