What type of interview was it?

Closed file

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

"Do you know the origin of your hometown's name? (The interviewer had grown up in the same area that I was from, so we talked a little bit about common experiences and places that we knew. There seemed to be a heavy emphasis on making sure that I was connected to TN)" Report Response

"Could you tell me a little more about ''...'' in your personal statment?" Report Response

"How does the quality of the U.S. health care system compare to that of the health care systems of other countries?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, read my AMCAS and supplemental application, got a good night's sleep." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Incredibly laid back and friendly atmosphere from both students and faculty. Nice new building. Beautiful surroundings." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The hospital isn't as busy as I might have liked, and the RPCT students are frequently separated from the rest of the class since they have to travel a lot more." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviews were far more relaxed than I thought possible. ETSU does interviews closed file, but the interviewers get to read your AMCAS personal statment and supplemental application beforehand. One of my interviewers asked me a few questions from those, and the other hadn't read anything from them. In both interview, it seemed more like a friendly conversation than anything else."
