How did you prepare for the interview?

"I played beer pong with my brother, and passed out to a random girl massaging my head on her couch. I woke up at 3am, and drove back to my hotel, got a few more hours of sleep, then drove downtown for my interview. (My experience with these interviews has been the more relaxed you are the better. Still wouldn't necessarily recommend this approach for all.)" Report Response

"How causal it was. The interviewer wanted to get to know you. AND, most importantly, he gave me his true opinion of the school - which was a warning of things to come" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

No Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was one of the lead surgeons at MCV (possibly the best medical school in Virginia). He told me he had to work very hard to get past the stigma he had attached to him as an FMG (foreign medical grad.) But he obviously did get past it. St. Geroge's is a place of last resort. It will will get you to where you need to go, but you will always struggle." Report Response
