"If someone were to write a novel about you in 15 years, how would it read? Overall, he seemed to want to know that I had concrete plans of paying for school." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"The most interesting would probably be what kind of medicine i wanted to get into whether academic or otherwise. I found this interesting because I clearly realized that i didn't know what academic really meant. My interviewer didn't make me feel stupid for not knowing, but he educated me about the different ways one can go with medicine, and even went on to say that he didn't know this until he got knee-deep into the process of deciding what he would do with his MD. I appreciated him for this." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was very laid back. it started out with me writing one of the three essays for 10 minutes, trust me that is enough time. The three options were 1. Write about the characteristics of a good doctor 2. Who has influenced you the most 3. A moment that affacted your life. I chose the one about the most influential person. After the essay portion, I got asked the standard questions SGU requires that the interviewer ask and then I got to ask him question about the school." Report Response
