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

"Tell me about your class in Clinical ethics. (he just chose randomly from my transcripts)" Report Response

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

"Are you sure you want to be a doctor? It is very difficult/stressful/time- consuming/horrible. Do you have what it takes? Do you ever think about just doing something easier? My first interviewer basically drilled me on my decision to pursue medicine. I think he was just trying to see how I would defend myself and prove to him that this is what I wanted to do. In the end, he said he should give me his daughter's number becuase I could do a good job of talking her into medicine. So I suppose he liked my answer and does not actually dislike being a physician as much as he implied. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Reputation of the school. Organization of the interview day. Simulation labs (for cardiology, anesthesiology, obstectrics) that are amazing and brand new. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Was not told much about social/extracurricular activities of the students. Did not get a good feel for how students get along at the school. They may get along great, but the social aspect of the school was still very unkown to me when I left. The entire area is very much under construction. I imagine the appearance of the school will be much more attractive when it is finished." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Children's hospital is ranked third in the nation. They have, I believe, 5 different hospitals attatched to the main medical school. I did not realize that they had such a medical community connected to and affiliated with the medical school. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Everyone was very nice. The number of applicants at the interview was much larger than any other interview I've had. Approximately 60 people were there interviewing with me. It is a good idea to get to know people around you becuase there is some down time before and after the interviews, and it gets a bit boring/stressful if you just sit there." Report Response
