What was the most interesting question?

What was the most difficult question?

"They asked me how I felt about entering a "minority field" of medicine. I was taken a bit off-guard even though I did happen to get a heads up regarding this question from reading other SDN feedback." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read feedback here on SDN, compiling a list for myself of the most frequently asked questions. I had the good fortune of having a caring family doctor who prepped me, spending a half an hour of his own time to help me embrace the proper mind set to approaching this interview. He even let me bring in clothes for a fashion consult." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I spoke with some very enthusiastic students while waiting for my formal interview. I knew a few students passing us in the food court where we waited for our formal interview. They made me feel welcomed and even more supported." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I felt like they were playing a "good cop/bad cop" scene with me as one interviwer was very engaging, the other shuffled papers and avoided eye contact when ever I opened my mouth to speak. That was a bit unnerving, so I pretended he had a socialization disorder and tried not to make him uncomfortable." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To dress comfortably as myself- comfortably. I was the only one of the 6 of interviewed that day that was not wearing a black suit. I felt like I expressed myself, but the fabrics were a but static-filled which gave me a bit of a distraction wondering if I was getting rumpled. It's silly to even repeat this, but the bottom line really is that they want to meet you, the person. So, express that in all the ways you can without being too outrageous, of course. Save that for later." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I have been very clear from the beginning that this was the school for me. I put all my eggs in one basket and only interviewed here. As a non-traditional student and mother of 2, I really neede to stay absolutely single minded from the start of the pre-med endeavor all the way through. It reads clearly to your interviewers when you know what you want. Take time to research yourself and be clear before you start flying all over the country to attend many interviews. Look over the questions on this website, and refer back to your own essays that you worked on to get yourself to the point of being granted an interview. Be yourself in whatever glorious ways you can be." Report Response
