What was the most difficult question?

"Name 3 people you would like to meet, dead or alive. This one stumped me. I couldn't think of anyone after naming my dad, so I said Schroedinger for some reason (don't ask me why). I bet you my interviewer thinks I'm a big nerd now... No healthcare questions at all though, which is a good thing for me." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, school website, read up on healthcare issues online, read my primary and secondary applications, talked to friends at the school." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I'm really into research and I didn't think this school was into promoting research for its med students, but they're really trying to make a name for themselves in the life sciences. I think that my interest in research was a plus since they are really set on expanding in terms of research." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The drive to Temple was long. There were lots of turns and highways and towns to go through, but I kind of tailed the guy in front of me. =) But then again, this was my first interview experience and I didn't think my first interview was all that great (though by no means bad either) so I had a lot of time to rethink some of the answers to the questions he asked. Good thing I did because my second interviewer at Temple asked some of the same questions and that one went really great!!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"emphasis on research, Scott and White, that my low GPA (3.3) was not an issue for either of my interviewers since I had the upward trend going (they both told me that I had NOTHING to worry about in terms of numbers which was a HUGE relief)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, it was a great first interview. If anything, it's prepared me for my next interview and others to come (I hope!). A&M is a great school and they are VERY friendly. Everyone knows everyone there and I am looking for that kind of environment in a medical school. I wasn't really considering this school as one of my tope choices but I think my opinion has changed drastically. The location is somewhat of a turnoff though." Report Response
