How did you prepare for the interview?

"I practiced with a friend who was also interviewing, going through typical questions and critiquing each other. I also did a mock interview in the career center. They also asked typical medical school questions, and threw in a few curveballs as well. Although the majority of questions they asked were not a part of the actual interview, sitting down with a panel of strangers, in a suit, and formulating the best possible answers is an excellent way to prepare for the atmosphere of the real thing. They gave me good, honest feedback which gave me a lot of confidence going in to the real thing. When I arrived on interview day, I was at ease because I was already familiar with the environment of the interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The school is incredible, and the interview panel was friendly and conversational." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I thought the interview day itself was fairly lackluster. There was no programming, only a simulation center tour at certain times throughout the day. If I had been a student who traveled far to interview, I think I would have been quite frustrated." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not much really, I didn't feel there was anything about the interview that was completely unexpected." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The best way to prepare is to know your application in and out. Have a story and/or a lesson learned from each experience ready to share. Think about how your experiences have prepared you to be a doctor. Ninety percent of the questions I was asked came directly from my personal statement or list of activities." Report Response
