What impressed you positively?

"I was excited to hear about the emphasis placed on clinical skills and family medicine. I was worried coming into the interview that research would be heavily stressed, but it wasn't." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Talking with the fourth year who was a part of my interview reinforced that medicine is a hard field to get into and requires a lot of devotion and a bit of sacrifice - I don't think this is unique to this one school, so in a way, it was good to have the honesty." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"This was my first experience, so the whole thing was new to me. What I think would have been helpful would be to go over aspects of myself that I wanted to make sure to communicate during the interview, and then make sure to touch on them often during our discussion. I feel like I let the interviewers guide the conversation too much." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was pleased with the experience. Of course the part of me that likes instant gratification would have loved to hear right away what my chances were as a candidate, I was able to feel pretty content with how I did. The main thing I think I would have liked to change would be to be more assertive, but that's not something I consider a natural part of my personality." Report Response
