What was the most interesting question?

"The questions themselves were normal, the circumstances were less so- the PSTP interviews are several days long- while you are only asked questions "officially" for a couple of hour-long interviews- I was asked the best questions and had the most substantive discussions with faculty and students alike at meals and social events. That was the interesting part- less the questions." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Why MD/PhD, not just MD or just PhD? How do you handle frustration?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"What the school WILL look like The students. The people there are really amazing- very close, friendly, helpful. I wish the interview weekend could be longer just to talk with them some more." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"Great conversations with people doing interesting research. The student sets the tone of the interview- confidence and personability go a long way. I think I only had ONE question about medicine. The PSTP interviews are very research- focused." Report Response
