At the school

How many people interviewed you?

3

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)?

"What were you thinking on the way to the interview? (That was easy cause the Red Sox had just won the ALCS... so I said ''My team just won the ALCS.''" Report Response

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

"So is your job like CSI? (This was right after I told them not to ask that question. Humor... I love it.)" Report Response

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

"What is your opinion on stem cell research?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"What is your opinion on stem cell research? (Now the guy who asked it didn't feel the need to reveal that he is a stem cell research PhD until after my response. He proceeded to badger me over my response both before and after that revelation.) " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What is your opinion on stem cell research? (The question itself is not hard. The indigination that I received after indicating that as people of science it is our duty to educate the public about the ''possibilities'' of science instead of making wild claims was a bit annoying to deal with. But I stand by my assertion.)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I didn't. I treated it like court testimony (which is a part of my current job). " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The board scores. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"We didn't learn anything about the school till the last 30 minutes of the day (which is when we spoke with a dean). Most of the us commented during the lunch that we really weren't presented with any information about the school. The tour guided didn't seem to know much. My favorite line was ''This is the clinic. It's where people come to be examined by the doctors.'' Oh really? So you go through 80% of the day not knowing anything. One can only hope the dean's presentation is truly spectacular. Luckily, the presentation was great. Afterwards I felt that I was properly informed on the potential of the school. This is why I can rate the opportunities present as some of the best I've seen. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I really wish I would have had a greater appreciation of the preparation AZCOM gives its students. Fantastic board scores. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"As I said a little earlier, I walked around for most of the day not knowing anything about the school. The tour was terrible because the guy didn't seem to know anything. Most schools I've interviewed at have students lead you on the tour. This probably should have been done for this interview as well. Again, the dean's presentation put my fears to rest, but it was 1:30 before I knew how AZCOM approaches cirriculum, board prep, rotations, etc. These are topics that a prospective student should know well before the day is over.
