What was the most interesting question?

"nothing interesting really, all pretty standard questions" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"No difficult questions really. Very conversational. One lady did ask: "where do you see yourself in 10 years?". Now the question was not difficult but I guess she expected more for me to say after I had given my full answer, so I was scrambling to say more for a little bit. Hopefully that wasn't too big of a slip. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN. Mock Interview. Looked at website. Talked to 1st year student. Went over AMCAS application." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The atmosphere is really really great. Now this may not be for everyone, but since there are only about 50 students the class is very close knit with themselves and their professors. The professors offices are on the same floor or the floor below, so they are easily accessible for help. I like the fact that you can just walk in to a professors office at 9pm uninvited to ask a question or to just chat. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"this not necessarily negative, but more of a "heads-up". Huntington is small. They still have practically every store or amenity that you could possibly need as a medical student but if you are looking for a town like chicago, or new york, this is not it. But then again, how much free time will you have anyway?" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"first two years are graded. no tour, got to go on your own time. Interview at hospital, not at school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I thought the interview experience was very good. The school is really nice, and I like that since the class size is so small, the students get more attention from faculty. I had 2 interviews which both ran about 45-50 minutes. Cindy Warren, the assistant-dean ( i think) is the biggest sweet heart. She makes you feel sooo comfortable. It was definetly different from my other experiences because of how nice and personal everyone is. I even went in the night before to check out the class and anatomy lab and met about 10 students, which is 1/5 of the class. They were are all really friendly too." Report Response
