"Suppose you were the leader of a country that went into a conflict based on data from your advisor and then realized that data was wrong? What would you do? (This seemed too politcal and it made me uneasy)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"New classrooms, I sat in on two classes which I really liked. One class was great, lecturer was funny and easy to listen to, the other class was boring so we left. Having lunch with the students was helpful." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Faculty interview would always say ''Is there anything else'' after every answer I gave, it made me uneasy. It seemed faculty interview was not familiar with my file." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"GPA and MCAT are not included in the open book interview. The anti-( LDS white male ) thing is a myth, that just happens to be the majority of the people applying so you here stories about how the school won't except you if you fit that mold. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Student interviewer was great, shared similar interests and was very friendly. Also seem like student had taken the interview seriously and studied my file closely which was helpful. Faculty interview was weird during the last half because of the hypothetical political nation mind game, I was not expecting that. I really hope they enforce the third interview policy on my file if the interview scores differed too much." Report Response
