"If you are a physician and a man from another country comes into your clinic and needs healthcare (for diabetes), but he cannot pay you, what do you do? Note: why did they mention that he was from another country??? Was that really an important part of the question? " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, started to read The DOs but got sooo bored that I couldn't finish it before the interview (not a knock on the book, I just didn't find it very interesting), read up on medical ethics." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is beautiful. Everyone I met was very positive about the school, and it seems as if they are constantly updating the buildings." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Some guy yelled at my group during the tour to "Get out while you can!" But I guess you have your idiots everywhere. Also, although they told us that they would send us emails on Monday if we were accepted, I heard that some people got called on their way home from the interview day. So I was highly stressed, thinking that I was rejected because I did not get the call. Not a huge problem, just a little annoying :) They should be consistent in the way they accept people." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was super laid-back. I was nervous when I got there in the morning, but by the time that the interviews rolled around I felt quite relaxed. All three of my interviewers were nice and enthusiastic about the school. I was asked a couple of ethics questions, but the way the interviewers asked the questions it didn't seem like they were grilling me. They actually lead into the question by saying, "Now there is no right or wrong answer to this question..." Overall, the day was nice, and it was great to hear that I was accepted three days later."
