"I'm a bit older (36) than the average applicant. The interviewer asked why the career change and at such late stage. (I expected this.)" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Not that many difficult questions. Expect the obvious (why medicine, why SGU, etc.) He really asked if I had thought this thoroughly through. It seemed more confirmatory." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read SDN, SGU Web site." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"He said he did his 3rd & 4th years at a hospital where many residency programs don't fill, so he got to do a lot more than the average 3rd & 4th year student. Most patients he saw weren't the most educated and therefore had a lot of complex issues which prepared him well for Step II. But he said he worked like a dog." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Met the interviewer (former SGU student) at the VA hospital outside Boston. It was quite laid back. He really seemed to ask me confirmatory questions if I had thought through all the issues of leaving the US for 2 years. Also asked if I thought through how I'd pay for all the expenses. (I think this is a standard question of theirs)." Report Response
