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

"What do you like about Dominica? Why Ross? Why didn't you chose an American school - Be honest for this question as the interviewer knows that most of them go to Ross just because they have a bad gpa or a bad mcat and not because they want to stay on an island. I told him that I did bad on my verbal section in my MCAT and I think he was happy with my honest answer. I tried to explain a little on why I did bad on my verbal!" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"All the questions were expected.. '' What would you like to do after 10 years? '' To my answer, the interview also pointed out sarcastically that ''Do I not want to help the underserved'' and he said that everybody says that and he doubts all those people who say that. So, dont say that you want to help the underserved unless, you do not have anything else to say." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"No unexpected questions. But all the interviewers asks to explain a C. I never got a C in my life, so he told me that I was making his job difficult. So, make sure that if you have a C, you can explain it." Report Response
