"Specific question about my research." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I didn't do anything as it was one of my last interviews, but in retrospect I really should have reviewed my research." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Small class size, beautiful facilities, enthusiastic and highly qualified professors- how excited everyone seemed to be about the new program, the awesome research opportunities and the incredible financial aid." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The fact that they'd never graduated a class or had anyone take the boards makes me very nervous. They tried to reassure us, but really what can they say? Also, I'm not sure that having the entire currciulum be P/F will be good when it comes time for residency matching. It might be better if they did like Mayo, making the pre-clinical years P/F and the clinical ones H/P/F" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Can't think of anything, but the tour was pretty long so comfortable shoes might be a good idea." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I came into the interview not really expecting to like the school that much, but by the end of the interview day it was one of my top two or three choices. I was so impressed by the hospital's great reputation, the enthusiastic faculty, and the advisor system. I interviewed with two PhDs b/c my MD interviewer had to take care of an emergency. The first interview was really easygoing, just trying to get to know me with some general questions about my research. The second interview was more intense, but it really gave me an opportunity to sell myself and talk about why I would be a good fit." Report Response
