1

What was the style of the interview?

One-on-one

What type of interview was it?

Open file

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

"Interview was more a discussion than a question/answer session. My interviewer chose to use open-file format (it is their option though on what they use) so I was asked questions to clarify and expand on that." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Specific question regarding my research. I was pleased that they actually were interested in what I had done." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"It always comes back to why medicine, because for me it is more than just ''I have always wanted to be a doctor''" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, School website" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"PHX Campus- Faculty, progressive thinking, integration of research into the four years of school, their plan for the future, that the UofA Phoenix campus and program is almost completely separate from the Tucson program." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"PHX Campus - It is a new location that is still building facilities so things are not clear yet as to where classes will be held, when and how the new buildings will come up, etc. Obviously there will be some growing pains associated with a new program. Location...downtown Phoenix/Tempe. Crowded, hot...and the campus really is just a bunch of buildings. Nowhere to be outside and enjoy the winter weather there in Phoenix. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish their were more details on their web-site that show how different and unique the PHX program is, not to mention how qualified and outstanding their faculty is. I really went in expecting a UofA Tucson style program. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"SDN still hasn't added the UofA Phoenix program on here, so this entry only addresses Phoenix. Day starts are 845 with check in. Their is a short presentation on the curriculum and future plans for the school. Top notch stuff. Half the group interviews at 1000, the other half at 1100. While one group interviews the other one gets a tour of the campus, then they switch. There is tons of space for research facilities and the facilities they do have are brand new. I felt like I was in an IKEA catalog too by the new decor everywhere. My interviewer was outstanding. The best that I have had in 8 interviews thus far. After the tour/interview you have lunch with the students. Since they are in their first year of the new program (and they are the first class at the Phoenix campus) they were pretty excited about anything. A common theme that came up was that they had ''faith'' in the faculty despite all the unkowns about the new program. I was very impressed with the visit. The PHX campus/program is top notch and will only get better as they flesh out their facilities and work through the growing pains." Report Response
