What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"What is the most shocking thing you have ever done in your life?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"What would you do if a patient refused the treatment that you advised for her? For example, if you told her to take her medication but she refused, what would you do? Would you stop being her doctor if she did not listen to you?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What is the dumbest thing you have ever done? (Although this question isn't all that difficult, it's hard to think of something on the spot..I couldn't think of anything so I just changed the question a little and described something that I regretted doing but wasn't necessarily "dumb" and my answer seemed fine with the interviewers)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read stuff on studentdoctor.net, the news, ethical issues, healthcare issues, and read over my application" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everybody at the school was very friendly. The weather was perfect! 80 degrees in February! The board scores for the school has a 98% passing rate which I thought was impressive. Two of the three interviewers were very pleasant and easy to talk to. The campus was very nice and the facilities were impressive. You are tested every Monday at this school which doesn't give you a weekend but at least it keeps you up on studying." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"One of the three interviewers I had seemed like he was trying to intimidate everybody he interviewed. He was the one that asked me what was the dumbest thing I've ever done and just put me on the spot for a few questions. Towards the end though he lighetened up more. The cafeteria at this school is very small and its only open from 7 to 2:30 everyday. There is wireless only in the library. One of the students said that the anatomy lab is not that great at all and it is pretty small so groups actually have to rotate on the cadavers. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The campus doesn't have a lot of cultural diversity. Of course being in Arizona, a majority of the medical school class consists of Mormons so many are married and have kids already. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, despite the negative things I found, I think that the positives outweigh them all. The curriculum is very intense but obviously successful since they have one of the top board scores. The people are very nice and down-to-earth. There was a lot of down time while you were waiting for your interview but it was nice to talk with the other students and discuss how their other interviews have been." Report Response
