What are your general comments?

"For my first interviewer I had the person everyone warns you about with the ''tricky'' questions. While it may have seemed a bit strange to ask me what life means to me or what is compassion, I understood why he asked them. You can't really get to know a prospective student by asking the typical ''Why do you want to be a doctor?'' questions because anyone can give the same, hackneyed answer. Many people respond differently to questions about life and death, about human society and civilization, and how you answer is what he was looking for. Overall I was a little stressed because it took a little time to think of how to respond, but it was a good experience to have. My second interview was very relaxing and felt much more like a conversation, which mostly focused on my background. Aside from being asked who my hero is and why I applied to the program (BA/MD Early Assurance Program) it was a very pleasant half hour. " Report Response
