How did you prepare for the interview?

"3 mock interviews. 1 was videotaped with 2 other people. 1 online (MSN) with a classmate. The other one was 1 to 1 the night before the interview... in my suit! I think they all helped, big time. Other things include reading an ethics book (Doing Right), reading news archive (not really helped), going over the journals that I kept for some of my volunteer work, write down questions and come up with answers (yes sometimes you KNOW what to say, but then when you practice you realize how un-convincing you are, hehe), talking to parents/ friends about various questions (eg. honesty, integrity). Check out this site, the Ezboard, emailed current med students... etc" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"They just let me talk talk talk. I personally wasn't intimidated by them at all, I wasn't nervious neither. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing hehe. I felt I did all I could to prepare for it, and I said what I wanted to say (95% I say, except the research question that didn't go so well). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Awesome! After the integrity one I felt the mood lightened up. Well the best thing is that it really WAS a funny experience, and they really laughed, like for real, I thought that was fun, and the way an interview suppose to be! You shouldn't just be serious (well ofcoz you gotta be serious on questions like "why be a doc" and "why honesty matters") but you should also show them the other sides of you!" Report Response
