What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"There are a lot of careers that would give you an opportunity to help people, so why medicine specifically?" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Looking down the road 10 years, what changes do you see coming about in medicine and what are some things you anticipate having to deal with as a physician?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"We were talking about problems in healthcare and the foreseeable changes in American healthcare, and the bureaucracies in medicine, etc., and I was asked where I felt I would fit in all of that, as a physician, and what role I would play." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Probably the same as above. The questions were, for the most part, pretty straight forward and came mostly from my file. Didn't get any ethical questions." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This site. Tried to bone up on healthcare a bit. Practiced, aloud, answers to anticipated questions. Attended a lecture at the Huntsman Cancer Institute a couple days before my interview and checked out the facilities." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"A lot, actually. The new facilities really are top notch. The other interviewees were all friendly. The students were great, and went out of their way (a few, at least) to welcome us and wish us luck. The admissions staff was great, particularly the lady who gave the tour (Tammy, I think). Sat in on a class and the lecturer was really excellent. Great opportunities for research. And the lunch was really good." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much. The financial aid presentation was somewhat mind-numbing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That there was no need to stress." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I left the U of U with a far more favorable view of the school than I had going into the interview. Almost everything impressed me. One interview with a faculty member and one with a 4th year. Both had read my file and were well prepared. Both were genuinely interested in learning about my experiences. Felt like they wanted to discover the good things about me. Though a couple kids in my group had some really tough questions. Guess it just depends on your interviewer." Report Response
