What are your general comments?

"The interview went rather well. This was my 5th interview of the year, so I really wasn't nervous at all. I spent most of the time talking and my interviewers spent most of the time listening. As a result, they didn't ask too many poignent questions, except for the "tell us about a proud moment" one. I was surprised to find that most of the other students did get an overt ethical question, however I did not. It might be due to the fact that I naturally sort of bring up the issue in talking about why I want to get into medicine (helping underserved populations). Overall, my interviewers were quite nice and congenial, all three: the D.O., the Ph.D., and the student. If you are prepared for the typical "med school" questions you should do fine. And honestly, I didn't feel like there was a whole bunch of down time, as others on this site have said. Perhaps it was because I was in the first group to interview, but I found the other applicants to be very nice and talkative." Report Response
