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

"Tell me a little bit about yourself like where you grew up, where you went to school, your family, etc. Nice way to start the interview." Report Response

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

"As an out of state student, why would you want to come here for medical school? They definitely want to know why you are interested in Louisville, so be prepared with that answer." Report Response

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

"What do you like to do for fun?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"What was the most important decision you have made so far in your life? and What has been the best experience in your life?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I was caught off guard when I was asked "how do you feel about physician-assisted suicide?" followed a few questions later by "how do you feel about partial birth abortion?". I knew ethical questions could possibly come up, but I certainly did not expect 2 in one interview. Needless to say, I was not prepared too well for that, stammered out a stupid response, and prayed it didn't influence their impression of me too poorly. Best advice I could give would be to have a basic answer to ethical questions; state that you would never disobey whatever law was in place wherever you were practicing and you would hope to do what is in the best interest of the patient." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"looked over my application (AMCAS & secondary for UofL), looked at the website for info about the school, tried to just relax and be myself" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"the students really did seem very happy, the atmosphere of the city and the school were great, I liked the city a lot as well, lots of stuff to do outside of school" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't learn that much about the school from the short 5-10 minute admissions presentation, I had hoped to learn more about curriculum, etc. Also, the interviewers had barely looked at my application before the interview." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that I would have gotten TWO ethical questions, maybe I could have at least answered one of them coherently" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I got in, so I must not have bombed the interview. Show enthusiasm for the school and have specific reasons why you want to go there over other schools. Be confident in yourself and try to show your passion for medicine. It's a good school with great clinical opportunities. The interviewers get your AMCAS and UofL secondary but without any grades or scores, so they are academically blind. Which is good, unless you feel you have some issues with numbers that you'd want to explain." Report Response
