"You are the surgeon general of your home state, and you have a fixed budget (it cannot increase or decrease). You need to increase spending to pediatric and pre-natal care, where do you cut to support that?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The very first question of the very first interview was, "So how do you reconcile your grades (3.1) and your MCAT scores (35)?" I had figured this would come up, but not as the very first question and quite so directly." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reviewed my secondary, SDN, spoke to interviewers I know @ other schools for advice" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone is incredibly friendly. The tour guide seemed to have a bad attitude at first, but he really was just putting on a show and turned out to be a great guy." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There seemed to be a lot of disparity among the interviewers - some went consistantly for almost an hour, others went consistantly for under 25 minutes." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Wish they would've given a map of the campus. It's easy to find, but when you're stressed and not thinking straight, the building right in front of you can't possibly be the one you want (even though it is)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Not quite as laid back as many tell you, I actually wound up with almost a good cop/bad cop atmosphere between the two interviewers. It never really reached a point of being "high stress," it just wasn't stress free." Report Response
