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

"1) Tell us something about yourself that is not on your application. 2) How do you deal with stress? 3) Did you ever have a conflict in your life and how did you overcome it? 4) What are some weaknesses you see in yourself that you feel you should change? 5) What are some qualities you feel you posses? 6) What attracted you to osteopathy? Although they didn't ask me, I have been told by other students that they sometimes will ask you about your MCAT scores and maybe a low science grade. So be prepared. There were a couple more questions but I forget. The other posts have them. GOOD LUCK and be confident. You have been granted an interview. This means that they like what they see on paper, now just show them that's who you are. " Report Response

Dr.Weiss who spoke at our interview stressed how important it was that we recognize that we are interviewing them just as they are interviewing us. I was also impressed by the mandatory dress code. We are all going to be medical professionals so why not start dressing professional now during our learning.?" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We arrived at the school at about 8. They gave each us a name tag and we went into a waiting room where we were able to talk and get to know each other. A first year student then entered and gave us a tour. We met with a couple of the professors and went into the room where Dr. Weiss would go over the imformation regarding the school and one by one they would pull us out of the room for our interviews. On a side note it is essential that you make good eye contact with everyone iin the staff and faculty and even the other interviewees. Smile and ask questions. Act like you are interested and that you want to go there. Believe me it works. I didn't think my inter view went that well. My panel consisted of two Ph.D's and a D.O. The D.O. seemed very friendly and receptive to my answers but the two Ph.D's looked very stoic and nonresponsive to my answers. I thought it could have gone alot better but thankfully I got in. It was because I asked questions about the school and some of the classes in the cirriculum. I made eye contact with each of the interviewers as I spoke. I also smiled and was very corgile and friendly but at the same time confident. " Report Response
