What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"There were a lot of questions about communication. What is your communication style? How do you communicate with others? Aside from asking others questions, how do you get them to communicate with you? By the end I wasn't sure if there were any other ways they could ask me how I communicate." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"A question pertaining to an article I read. Basically, the interviewer asked, if given two alternate treatments a patient chose the worse of the two (in your opinion) what would you do? Neither one of the options is life threatning." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, reviewed my applications, reviewed research I did during my undergraduate years, I had a mock interview and practised interview questions with my mom." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The curriculum is all Problem Based Learning which, while it is a lot of work, statistically prepares students better for the boards AND clinical rotations. The entire campus is state of the art and the only way into the building is through a security guard. The faculty and staff are very approachable and friendly. One of my interviewers was both a D.O. and a J.D. with several years experience, but was still very down to earth. They provide a realtor, free of charge, to find you an apartment or house to live in." Report Response
