What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Tell me about yourself? (be prepared for this right off the bat) I basically gave him a breif bio about my family and where I've lived and stuff." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Tell me about your extracirricular experiences. I gave them more insight into what was on the paper. Maybe remember a specific story about what you did." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Are you interested in doing research? The school has a big initiative to becoming a top 20 state research school. So they like research interest." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Both of the interviews were really conversational. Probably the most interesting was about what medical issue I thought was going to be big issue in the near future. I talked about stem-cell research." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Surprisingly, they didn't ask the usual "why do you want to be a doctor." I always think that's the hardest question because it's so important to convey what you really mean and it's hard to do that. The one other than that I was asked was "what was a time that you had a great deal of responsibility and how did you deal with it?"" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I took questions off of this website, read my secondary, my primary wasn't really a focus. oh.. and haha, I went out 2 nights before and watched a movie the night before. I figured being relaxed was a good thing." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The stressing of how much the faculty is there for you. I definately like it being in a somewhat smaller class. I think it's about 90ish." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Probably Lexington in general, it might not be as culturally diverse as I'd like it to be. Also, I figure that during med school and residency is the only time that I'm going to be able to live in a big city, might as well enjoy it. Also, the library that they have at the med school... the nickname is the "dungeon" it's in the basement and not very nice. I'd kind of like to have a place that's not where the undergrad's study cuz during the finals, their library gets packed. but... it's nice to study with the undergrads. their library is really nice."
