The interviewers do not have any of your scores in front of them but they do have information from your secondaries as well as your personal statement." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"One of the interviewers asked me a question that took him five minutes just to explain it. I wont type the whole thing out, I will just say that he was trying as hard as he possibly could to generate questions designed to put someone on the defensive." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Same as above." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I didn't put much preparation into the interview. I read through a few posts on SDN but that was about it. I just wanted to be myself and not through out some memorized answers that I got from reading previous interview questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The campus is very nice. Plasma screen monitors, impressive anatomy lab, expanding facilities, nice area." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The faculty was not as friendly as some of the other interviews I have been on. The interviewers seemed to be trying to throw you off rather than getting to know your personality. Another concern I had was the 100 student increase that is going to be taking place next year. It sounded like they were taking steps to compensate for a larger class but from talking to other students, it seemed that 3rd and 4th year students are already struggling for good rotation spots." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"It would have been nice to know the type of interview I was about to receive but I believe that your interview experience is something difficult to predict since a lot of it really just depends on who you happen to interview with that day and the kind of personality and attitude they have. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"We arrived at 8:00 AM, had a meeting with financial aid that lasted about 45 minutes then we split up into two groups. The group I was in was taken on a campus tour while the other group stayed and interviewed. When our group returned we waited in the lobby for our interviews. After interviews were finished we had lunch and then listened to a presentation given by the dean. I believe the day ended about 2:30." Report Response
