They are thinking about adding medical mission trips to the curriculum in the next few years." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewer was purposely hard on me. I realized this after several other applicants went into the same room and came out freaked out. I talked to a couple med students there, and they also said that the interviewer did that on purpose and is in actuality, a really nice guy. Also, my interview was really short. I wish it had been a longer so that I could get more of my personality across. I also found out later that we were running behind so the interviewers were told to hurry it up. I wish they had just cut the time out of lunch instead." Report Response
