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

"Tell us how you deal with stress and give us an example. (I answered: I like to read, work out and talk to my friends (gave an example of how I was stranded in Australia with no money and no contact to my family for three days) they said: I medical school you may not have time to do all those, so, tell us, what do you say to that.-->Sometimes you get interviewers like this that want to make sure the caliber of students they admit are high, so be prepared to have some of your questions thrown back in your face, dont get angry and just put an even answer out there (mine was: Im not in medicial school so I am uncertain of how much stress I would face. However, once I knew I would have to reassess my coping skills and do differnt things. Talking to medicial students, however, I have gotten the feelig that chaning all of your ways of dealing with stress is not a good plan. Also, from my pshychology background I know that doing anything that is unrelated to what is stressing you is a very effective coping skill, so, just sitting in my room, not reading, may help)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Inteview was pretty laid back. The holistic example question threw me off. I may have a lot of clinical experience, but saying that I saw a physician talk to a patient and put their hand on their shoulder didn't seem to cut it for them, they wanted an example of when giving medicine was not the only solution. One of the guys was the head of the PBL and was very hard to read, he was the one that threw in the "specific" portion to the question. Overall though, I think I did pretty good and it was my first interview. The questions come from a sheet, so be prepared, they will ask all of you the SAME questions and not go into anymore detail.
