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

"What kinds of activities do you take part in that demonstrate that you are a team player?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"The most difficult question I was asked led into the most interesting questions I was asked. The most interesting question was: based on all of the negative issues facing the medical practice, especially in Florida, what makes you still want to become a doctor? What really made this question interesting was the cenacle manner and the tone in which this question was asked. The PhD who asked this question was very standoffish, unpleasant, and verging on rude, which made for a very uncomfortable interview." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

" The most difficult question I was asked was: explain to me the problems that the medical profession is currently facing with regards to malpractice insurance, Medicare... and how do you see the medical profession changing in ten years. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"By reviewing previously posted interview question on this website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I really liked the location of the School. There were four hospitals within walking distance and two other large hospitals within a 20 minute drive. All of the admission staff was very kind and welcoming (with the exception of the PhD that gave me my second interview). The students that I spoke to seemed to be very pleased with the cirriculum and with the medical school in general. It really seemed that the saff would do anything to help the students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The school could use a little renovation and my second interview was not very enjoyable at all." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My fist interviewer was very friendly, personable, and relaxed. As I previously described, the second interview was just the opposite. I think he wanted to see how I handled myself when I felt cornered. When I spoke to the other students in my group, they said that all of their interviews were really laid back, so I think I just had an unlucky draw getting that type of interviewer. Otherwise, the overall experience was very enjoyable. " Report Response
