"What were you like in highschool?" Report Response

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

"Favorite course as an undergrad? What will you do 5 years from now? (That's easy -- you'd be in residency.)" Report Response

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

"Were do you envision yourself practicing after graduation? (Again, trying to get you to say you would want to stay in Vegas)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"None really. Most questions were very standard, and all were listed previously on SDN. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I see you grew up in XXX, what would make you want to come to a desert? (I was prepared for this question, so not a problem -- but beware, some students received much trickier, ethical questions than I did -- and from the same interview group)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, read Touro's student handbook & other publications on their website about the school" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"That the students and faculty are proud of their school and very positive about the future growth they foresee the school will undergo (its first year was only 2004). Plus, the anatomy lab is huge & bright & smells fine. 4 students / cadaver" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"That the school is in one HUGE square building. So you would never have a reason to go outside at all during the day. Also, how the students mention they absolutely have no life, even on the weekends = only studying" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the admissions team invites almost half of the people who applied to an interview. Therefore, making it ''all the way'' to the interview process doesn't mean you have a great chance getting selected -- only about 3/10 students that interview will get an acceptance" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"All in all, the day was quite pleasant. The head of admissions Roger Corbman is a character -- always smiling and making jokes to help put the interviewees at ease. The dean of the school was transplated from UNTHSC to come to Touro, and he's very upbeat about the program as well. The day was well-organized and ran smoothly -- even the boxed lunches were decent. If you have in mind a medical school that has a campus - then Touro is NOT the place for you though - its just one building. Also, because Nevada is almost in last place in the 50 students for doctor/patient ratio the school REALLY wants you to graduate and then practice there as well, aka stay in Nevada. The interview itself was extremely relaxed.... but again, other people had really difficult questions - so it could be either. Also, one of the interviewers made a strong mention about how well physicians are paid in the area -- so if you like money..... then attending school at Touro is the way to go ;)" Report Response
