What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"15 year old girl walks into your clinic and wants an abortion, what do you do? (since I would have killed to give up an arm and a leg to know the answer beforehand, here's an idea of what the answer might be: inform the patient of the other options (adoption, keeping the baby), ask about her relationship with her parents and why she doesn't want them to know, inquire about the circumstances of the pregnancy (rape?) and run HIV and STD tests. If the patient still wants to have an abortion and is competent enough to make a decision, then the best choice of action is to do whatever the patient wants to do)." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Why do you want to become a doctor? They (actually, I brought it up) asked me about my lack of clinical experience, and my experiences mostly seemed to have dealt with research. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Went to Kelly's Taverna the night before with my roommates (they decided to tag along for the 5 hour trip.) Really small, nice, quaint bar. The crab dip's alright." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I read about the students being happy, but I had no idea how happy, nice and helpful they could be. Every other person was wishing my interview group luck and with smiles. This place seems like a close knit community, and seeing the stuff they did made me regret not doing community service myself. I look forward to going here, hopefully!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The night before, the drive down to the Norfolk area seemed depressing. The town seemed relatively small and I thought the next four years would be somewhat depressing and morose. However, I'm actually looking forward to it now seeing all these happy people. I can actually see myself going here!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there would be construction on Granby street. Woke me up at 5 in the morning. " Report Response
