How did you prepare for the interview?

"Wow... I read as much information about the school that I could. I definitely tried to mention details about the school that were unique (that other interviewees might not mention). I printed out pages of questions on Word and practiced answering them all week. I studied my resume, applications (TMDSAS and Secondary), and read up on the socialization of healthcare, abortion debates, and euthanasia debates. I talked with my friends in med school and spoke with a resident about how to carry myself and how to let my personality shine through without losing a serious mentality during the interview. Also, I bought a suit & low heel shoes!!!" Report Response
