What was the most interesting question?

"What did you learn from 'x' experience?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"What did you learn from 'x' experience? (not 'difficult' but required some on the spot reflection about an experience I wasn't expecting to speak about much, but I think it turned out okay! Advice: know your AMCAS work/activities and be prepared to talk about any part of it)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"School website, sdn forum, student feedback, watching videos, practicing with friends. Researched a bit about standardized patient interviews but wasn't necessary. The patient interview part seems nerve racking but once you are in with the patient, you just have a conversation with them and it's not that bad." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Organization of the day, how happy students seemed, relaxed and kind environment, faculty support and encouragement throughout the day, facilities. Also no sense of 'you should come here because we are the best.' They really give students all the info objectively and know that the small group/Cooper values may not be for everyone. Faculty also addressed concerns many may have about living in Camden. They made sure to stress the security protocols in place to help students feel comfortable. Really appreciated that part." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"N/A" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That it would be a relaxed and fun day. And that the patient interview part is SHORT. It flies by and then you're on your way to the next part of the interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Seems like such a kind and supportive environment to go to school in. You'll hear that it is relaxed and just keep that in mind. It really is an enjoyable day where they want to get to know you. Stay calm and try to have fun. Also for the interview- it WAS a conversation where you are given time to talk, as much as you want. Not a speedy Q & A format at all. I think whatever you say kind of directs the conversation/questioning. I would be most prepared for, 'Why Medicine' 'Why Cooper?' and 'Why Camden?' Have fun!" Report Response
