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

"the second interview had some questions, but mostly was an on-going back and forth about what i thought about brown and how it would fit into my ideal future as a med student. he talked a lot, but wanted to know exactly why i thought brown would be good for me. he was very specific in explaining that (as associate dean) he was interested in recruiting people to brown that would make it a diverse and unique place filled with people who had "extrodinary" experiences between undergrad and med school. he is not happy with the lack of diversity that the plme crowd has provided the school, and as such, wants to really make sure that any amcas students that they accept will really add to the overall life experience diversity of the student body. he was very excited about my international public health work and told me that in his opinion, moving brown towards a more public health/dual degree focussed school---in direct opposition to moving it towards an md/phd/academic medicine school---was the best thing for brown. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"really really great. if i get in, im definitely going. i wish they had given us a tour, and there were quite a few questions that i ended up emailing my interviewer with (he had invited me to email him with any further questions) cuz the info sessions werent all that complete, but all in all, i think its a pretty incredible school. and for reference, ive already gotten into 7 other schools, so its not like im desperate or anything.
