"There were quite few "what would you do..." questions but I honestly recommend include in the answer, that's why I want to attend Northwestern, to learn how to address such situations.That doctor forgot we were applicants. He was old." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"We were put on a group interview of 3 applicants and 3 interviewers, then we were given an imaginary case and we had to conclude with an action. It worked to meet my co-applicants prior to the interview to work better with them, yet show some leadership. Our case was about a student who falsified a signature, performed a tube feeding and killed the patient; yet she was the best of her class." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The ethical/moral questions were the toughest. Some were easy like "What would you do if you are the doctor in charge and you hear that a resident kisses a 5 yr old girl", but some where hard as to how to deliver bad news to someone or if you find out the patient was unfaithful or something that was a secret" Report Response

"Went to mock interviews at my undergraduate university career services, practice questions, read about the medical school program, curriculum, research opportunities, patient care ranking." Report Response

"Everybody was very positive about the school and made an effort to be friendly and reduce the stress. The Northwestern Memorial Hospital is awesome and the Dean of Admissions was a doll." Report Response

"A girl who pretended to love medicine so much that said she would be smiling and honored to be up for 72 hours working at a hospital. Even the Dean looked at her with pity eyes." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I always feel I could have done better in everything. I still think that I should have brought up more my knowledge about the school but there was no time actually, the interviews flow easily and don't stop." Report Response
