What was the most interesting question?

"Both interviews were very conversational. The interviewers were friendly and eager to talk up the school which is a plus. No left-field questions." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Why military medicine? (Although I was prepared, we kept coming back towards it and approaching it from different angles which was a little flustering)." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, reviewed file, mock interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"This is a great school. The students seemed to really love it, the school has the backing of the federal government and is located in major medical and research hub right outside D.C. (i.e., NIH and new Walter Reed hospital are literally right next door). If you have the chance, take the tour of the Walter Reed Sim Center, it really is a top-notch facility." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"All around the school offers a great opportunity to become a physician and serve your country and thus attracts a certain group of applicants (which is both good and bad). The school attracts older, married applicants and could benefit from a greater degree of diversity (though it is actively making strides in the latter)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Interview would be closed file." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was very impressed. Its important to consider the pros/cons of Military GME and military life in general before deciding if this is the right path for you. Personally, its one of my top choices (accepted in Oct.)." Report Response
