How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over AMCAS and Secondary apps, SDN. There are a ton of different interviewers, and they all apparently have different interview styles. Check out the questions on here, but also be prepared for some completely random questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students are very close and incredibly laid back... very little competition at UNC. Pass/Fail in the first year. Lots of construction and new buildings going up" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interview day was kind of short... if I didn't already know a good bit about the school already, I wouldn't have gotten a very good all-around picture" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't know if knowing this ahead of time would've affected my application at all, but UNC reserves only 20 spots out of 160 for out of state students... a lot lower than most state schools. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Both interviews were very different. My faculty member interview seemed more like a conversation than an interview, and my interviewer asked a lot of "who are you?" questions. The Admissions Committee interview addressed more of the "why medicine/why UNC" type questions and dealt more with my pre-med background. I don't know that either of my interviewers had looked at my file before I walked in to their offices, but I assume that's something that they'd do before presenting me to the committee. The interview day was kind of short, and there was a lot less clarity to the application process than I have experienced at other interviews." Report Response
