What was the most interesting question?

"None of them were particularly interesting. I was asked why medicine/why NYCOM/ whether I applied to any MD schools/what my research was about. The interviewer actually admitted that she had not read any of my applications. Which I was thrilled by, because the whole interview was me giving mostly just a summery of the secondary application. Pretty straightforward and easy. " Report Response

"''What else would you like me to know?'' was difficult because I couldn't think of anything to say! I knew that was probably a lot, but nothing came to mind. " Report Response

"Cadaver lab. I expected it to smell bad, but it was awful in there. I think they may not have had sufficient ventilation. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To focus on the generic questions and not even bother with any political/philosophical questions. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The doctor who interviewed me was extremely nice. She had no intention of intimidating me or making me nervous in anyway. From the start she told me that if I see her writing anything they're only good things. She said that she doesn't have much of a say in the decision making process unlike in some schools where the interviewer decides whether you get an acceptance. " Report Response
