What are your general comments?

"It was a nice school and an easy interview. I don't know how I did because I get my results back next Weds, but it was fine. Know your primary and secondary... they just went through and asked me questions. Remember that you can direct your interview! I didn't get any ethics questions until I directed the conversation towards healthcare (hey, I studied for it so we might as well talk about it!) They asked me questions such as "why is it so important for doctors to be able to effectively communicate and have interests other than medicine?" "who is your best friend/why is she your best friend/what does she do for you/what are her good and bad traits." They talked to me about my music and volunteering and my shadowing (I've done a LOT so it was no big deal). We talked about my thesis. They asked what was my biggest obstacle, what you want them to tell the committee. They asked whether I will continue to do research, and indirectly asked "why medicine." The other interviewees were also happy with their interviews. The most important thing is to RELAX! Smile and be friendly and you'lll be fine. " Report Response
