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

"So, I'm just here to learn enough about you to be your advocate at the committee meeting next Thursday. What do I need to know to best represent you?" Report Response

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

"How do you use your unstructured time during the day? (almost verbatim from the secondary)" Report Response

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

"What's changed from last year? Why do you think you didn't get in anywhere last year? (I'm a reapplicant)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"It was very conversational, so there weren't many "interesting" questions. They asked what specialty I was thinking about." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I was asked to talk about a really random committee I served on freshman year of college because it had an interesting sounding title. I mentioned it in passing in one of my essays, and wasn't really prepared to talk very intelligently about it." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over my AMCAS app and the secondary app. Did a few mock interviews with myself in front of the mirror and used SDN to keep up with current healthcare events (check out the socio-political forums)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Some facilities are old, but they are committed to updating them. The first year class room is immaculate, but the anatomy lab, upper class classrooms, and hospital haven't been updated yet. Parts of the hospital should be done by 2011 though." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was a bunch of construction going on which means that some things weren't really where they were supposed to be. Getting around can get confusing at times." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There is a lot of down time during the day. There's a lot of time for lunch and can be extra time between interviews, especially if the one before you runs long or yours ends early. Also, the tour covers A LOT of ground, so wear comfy shoes if you can." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, UK is a school that's going places. Most of the construction stuff they have planned won't be completed until after 2014 or so like the rest of the new hospital, the new health sciences campus, and whatever it is they decide to do with the old hospital and med school. They do have some stuff finished for the first years like classrooms, lounge, and lockers. Of course, once the rest of the construction is finished, and UK goes up in the rankings, a degree from there will be worth that much more. I guess it's a trade-off." Report Response
