What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Do everything by yourself (ie go to the actual interview without friends/family). You will meet people in your shoes and this will calm you down like crazy (it was my first interview, and I wanted my bro to come with me, but he said i was a loser and to go by myself...he couldnt have been more right)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was pretty laid back. The med student was cool. I could barely understand the doctor becauase of his accent, it kinda made me feel like a tool. Most of the questions were actually really standard ones that I had seen before. Nothing really on ethics, nothing on current events, nothing even from my sketch...weird. Even weirder was that most/all of my difficult questions were from the community member? who knew? really you cant be prepared for everything they're gonna throw at u. Just be confident, and know what things you wanna highlight " Report Response
