What was the most difficult question?

"I was asked what concerned me about being a doctor, began to answer and interviewer went into a mini tirade about what I was about to say. (about socialism of medicine) Apparently she was very liberal and didn't like what I was about to say. This surprised me somewhat and I wasn't sure how to handle it. Was I supposed to stand up for myself (if she did it on purpose). I was hesitant to speak against her opinions cuz I didn't want to make any enemies. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The problem based learning approach, I liked the community, the students were very nice and laid back." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I barely got a tour. My tour guide was very unprepared and didn't seem to care about giving a tour. He was rushed (expected to show the whole site in half an hour) and so didn't do much more than ask if we had questions i.e. we went up the elevator to the floor of the pediatric unit and didn't even leave the elevator area because he didn't really have time to show it to us, we looked into a classroom and he pointed into the direction of the labs, but that was it, no joke." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known one of my interviewers was very liberal - our disagreement may not change her opinion of me, but then again it may. If it does, I would've stayed away from that topic in particular." Report Response

"I thought the tour could've been done better at least by ensuring the tourguide cared about giving the tour. " Report Response
