What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Do you know what the 4 basic principles of ethics are? (This was during a conversation about an ethical situation. The interviewer actually went over the principles with me...very laid back, not interrogating)" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"If you don't get into any medical school ever, what else would you do for a career?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"A patient comes in with a mass on their abdomen. You want to perform an MRI or CT scan (which ever the appropriate test is). However, this patient has no insurance, cannot qualify for ACCESS, and certainly does not have enough to pay for a test like this. What do you do?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What is your opinion on socialized healthcare? What are the pros and cons?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Visited the school before. Read up on the school prior to going." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"My first interviewer. He happened to be chair of the curriculum committee and also developed the computer system in the gross anatomy lab. Also the gross anatomy lab was superb. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"All the students I talked with I asked them why they attended CMS and not another medical school. They all told me they got waitlisted else, but got in here. For someone who has gotten in already elsewhere, this was not an answer that helped my decision on attending CMS." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I should have brought a book. Hanging out in the waiting room the whole day certainly had a negative impact on me. The interviewers would come and go, but all the interviewees had to stay in this room for the whole day except during the tour." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I did not like waiting for 5 hours total in the same room. The girl giving the tour of the school was short with us (the interviewees) and really did not seem welcoming. I did like how laid back the interview was and the facility was quite nice." Report Response
