"You took this class, what did you learn in it, what did you think of it?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

What was the most difficult question?

"Same as above, since I really didn't find that particular class to be incredibly engaging." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, my application, talking to Alumni and current students I knew" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The location is gorgeous, and the medical school's physical plant is really modern." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour guides seemed to think that there was an animosity between the med students and the undergrads. I don't think this is anything that would bother me, plus I liked that they said this because it indicated that they were being very truthful with us, which is obviously a good thing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not too much. I had some questions about the clinical years that the tour guides answered." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewer spent a significant amount of time talking about himself. It was a little frustrating because I thought the interview was about me talking, but afterwards, thinking about it, I realized that it was probably done on purpose. Being a doctor is about having the right answers, but it's also about being able to listen to patients, and I am almost positive that he talked so much because he was testing my ability to listen. Hopefully I remained engaged enough." Report Response
