What was the most interesting question?

"I didn't have much interesting questions. Almost all of the questions were asked to better understand my experiences and who I am. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Why do you want to be a doctor? It took me several weeks to craft a good answer to this question. I had too much to say and didn't know how to filter my answer. I gave my answer to this question (only one interviewer asked me) and it seemed to bore him a little as my answer was kinda long (about 3-5 minutes). " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Ask myself various questions and write down the answer. Among many, let me list some. Why is so unique about me? What is my vision and goal as a physician? Why did I choose to do certain clinical and other experiences? What is community service and why did I do it? What is medical school (harder to answer than you think) and other questions that help me find out who I am and what really matters to me " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Very clean facility. The medical school building was almost brand-new including lecture halls, library. The gym is amazing!!!! it even has tanning beds too (what the heck!)" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Less than 10% of the class were minority descent. I saw no Asian, Latino students while I visited. I am a Asian American and would like to see some diversity within the class. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviewer were there to support me. When I had difficult time finding a right word to say, as English is my second language, the interviewer helped me pick right word for me. The admission committee knows that there is very little, if any, diversity within the class. They want to recruit students from different racial, ethnical backgrounds. This showed very obviously during my interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was my first interview and I was very nervous. The room in which I interviewed was very hot, which didn't help me at all (sympathetic nervous system, remember?) But the interviewer so kindly handed me a cold water out of a mini refridge. The interviewer made it toally conversational so that I was able to relax by the middle of the interview.
