The tour guides were really proud of the school and obviously happy with their experiences there, which was motivating. " Report Response

"Nothing really." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was very pleasant and had really studied my AMCAS app before meeting me. Her questions covered every topic I could've predicted, from ethical dilemmas requiring me to to role-play with her, to my past and current research projects, to my hobbies as well as standard questions pertaining to healthcare. Somehow the time passed very quickly. The kids who gave the tour were extremely enthusiastic about RWJ and did a great job of answering our questions. Unfortunately my tour only covered a few classrooms on the New Brunswick campus so I didn't get to visit a hospital. I was left with a very positive impression of the school and the kids seem truly happy there." Report Response
