What was the most interesting question?

"Two patients are brought into your ER in respiratory arrest. They have the exact same vital signs. Your nurses are busy with another critical patient and you have one ventilator. What do you do? (I feel that I may have been asked this question as I am an EMT and had mentioned my interest in emergency medicine.)" Report Response

"Same as the most interesting. Took me a while to think about it, but I was told I did get the answer right." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN forums and interview feedback, talked with a friend at the school, review school website, review application" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The anatomy lab. Plenty of room and natural lighting. Each lecture hall seat has a microphone that you speak into when asking a question so the entire class can hear you. Students can 'customize' their desk in the lecture halls. Friendly campus, friendly town (it was quite odd at first since I'm not used to that where I am from, but it was a great feeling)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"All out of state students know about the tuition." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"You'll be interviewed by a current physician, a member of the science faculty, and someone from the admissions office. Believe what everyone tells you- it is pretty laid back. Know your file (they sure will!), know why you want to go into osteopathic medicine and why you are attracted to WVSOM. Other than that just let it roll. Be yourself and you'll be alright. Have a few questions ready too. I heard their decision in a week." Report Response
