What type of interview was it?

Open file

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

"Looks like you did some research, give me an overview and tell me your findings. Guessed ahead of time that SGU would arrange for a cardiologist who had done echocardiography research, just so they could quiz me about my paper. It's a niice. " Report Response

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

"Why Medicine?" Report Response

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

"Looks like you had some rough patches in undergrad, how have you improved since then? If it were up to me, why should i let you in?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"None - all prescripted questions, read from SGU's list for interviewers. Nothing original at all. Though do be prepared to talk about a prominent ethics topic (choose one from UW ethics site). Just an overview with a few points is fine. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None - all foreseeable if you've read through the posts here, on Interview Feedback. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Interview Feedback - got all the essay prompts (chose one, wrote it out in advance, memorized it, regurge on interview day), all general questions and situations they could be given. Health care policy blog. UW ethics site. Med school interview book. Treatment kind and fair takeaways. Reviewed personal statement, C.V., GSP essay. All in all, uber-overprepared :)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Dr. K is a genuinely nice guy. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"But there is not an ounce of assertiveness in his body. No original questions, no real enthusiasm except just a big, general summary of his experiences at SGU. Which, i suppose, i should appreciate since there were no tricks. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Better to have overprepared than the alternative. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It felt really short and that I did most of the talking. Wished he could've been more enthusiastic but he seemed to have been on a busy schedule - can't blame it on a character flaw (got a page the last 5 minutes of the interview, answered it, told the Dr. on the other end that he'd be there in 5). Must be another overworked resident. " Report Response
