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

"all basic questions about my future goals and my interests in medicine. my student interviewer though asked me more general questions about my life and what i had done. the student interviewer only gets your name, your undergrad school, and your hometown, so they basically know nothing. the faculty interviewer gets only your personal statement, so that is a little more intimate, but mine still wanted me to give her a general idea of who i was. the last interviewer, which is the dean of admissions, only talks to you for like 10ish mins and he just wants to grill you to make sure that you have a reason to apply to pitt specifically, and then he'll probably ask you where else youve applied/interviewed/been accepted. be prepared for him cuz hes really direct and quick.
