What type of interview was it?

Open file

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

"The first interviewer only wanted to know who I was. He asked, "Tell me about yourself." "Tell me about college." "Tell me about high school." Standard. Easy. Relaxed." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"The second interviewer wanted to know about my current research." Report Response

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

"Both interviewers were interested in my desire to attend CMS/RFUHS..." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"I was asked to "talk about high school." I didn't expect to ever discuss anything that happened to me before college, but this was a plus for me since my high school record is fairly strong with regards to activities." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I was asked why I thought I'd make a good orthopedic surgeon. While this question wasn't really difficult, it was probably the most difficult out of everything I was asked." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Browsed the feedback for CMS on SDN, read the website, checked out descriptions of the school in the standard med school guides." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interviews - they were totally relaxed and conversational. I wasn't asked any difficult questions (I like easy interviews, obviously). I'm not sure whether this was good or bad, though - why didn't they want to know what I thought about challenging ideas?" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tuition is really, really high. But I guess that's to be expected from a private institution that can't draw much revenue from patients (there aren't any, really)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I think I prepared for the interview thoroughly enough that nothing really surprised me. I knew how far it was from the city, and I expected the day to be "unstructured," as they put it." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Being my first interview, it was great. I normally am really nervous at interviews, but the interviewers did a great job of getting to know me more through conversating with me than by grilling me. The day went relatively quickly. I was lucky enough to meet the dean, who is an amazingly nice guy. Lunch was good, and we had a great tour guide who was incredibly informative." Report Response
