What was the most difficult question?

"You are a pediatrician that has treated a low income family with three kids under ten and they just had a new baby. They asked to have the child genetically screened and it has come back that the child has a disorder that is currently untreatable and that will render it mentally retarded by the age of six. Whether conscious or not this will lead to neglect bordering upon abuse of the child by the family because of the time and resouces needed to properly treat the child. Describe the conversation you would have when you told the parents about the results of the genetic screen." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How far removed it was and how little there actually is within close proximity to the school." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You start out in the office of admissions with around seven other students and wait there until one of four interviewers for the day come and call you out to join them in a sixteen square foot room that is slightly intimidating by itself. There is a lot of down time so you can go play pool or foosball next door to the admissions office in the student lounge, or just sit an wait. Then you are lead around the school for a tour. Though the students seemed nice, their info seem slightly contrived and like they were reading off a tour info sheet, which they were. But overall, it was a smooth day and the campus seems nice."
