"Questions on family (see above - once again, not sure about the importance of this)." Report Response

"Are you estranged from your father?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read about current medical events and as much info on RFU from their website as possible." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students were easily approachable for questions/concerns." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewers' inability to question me on the important events in my application and my motivations behind choosing medicine. One interviewer flat out stated that he didn't even read my application before asking me questions. He may have done a better job if he did." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is lots of down time during the interviews with no presentation from the admissions staff. You will wait until all the applicants go through their two interviews and then head to a lunch/tour with students. Then it's over. Bring a book." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewers didn't do the school any favors in my case (see the above for more detail). I left the interviews feeling that they had no organization on how to evaluate my person or application with respect to medicine. The interviews were more weird and sometimes inappropriate than stressful. Also, I came into contact with no one who could tell me about the clinical years. All the students were 1st/2nd years, who didn't know much about their next 2 years, and the interviewers had no further information about it either. I felt that this information would be extremely important because this school doesn't have its own hospital like every other school." Report Response
