What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Lots of talk about my previous career (I'm non-traditional)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"The ethics in medicine question turned out to be interesting because after I gave me answer, I was asked how I would approach a patient regarding the subject and then one of my interviewers pretended to be a patient and we did a little back-and-forth role play. Very laid back and fun though, not nerve-wracking!" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I guess the back and forth made me a bit nervous, but really, nothing was difficult. They really do want to get to know you. They're not out to trick you or stump you with unusually tough questions. I thought my interviewers were great! They put me at ease right off the bat!" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over my application material" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything! I love their curriculum and I love that they're honest with you about the pros and cons of the school. I didn't get the feeling they were trying to "sell" me on the school, but rather that they were telling me how it was." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"About the school, nothing. As far as other stuff goes, it's my own fault I'm disappointed about this, but I didn't like Century Towers. I was really looking forward to the CT tour because I thought it sounded great from everything I read, but it turned out not to be what I was expecting." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I hadn't been worried about the neighborhood. It turned out not to be as bad as I was picturing. No, there weren't roses and butterflies on the street corners and halo-wearing angels ready to help you cross the street, but it really wasn't that bad. It's a big city and big cities aren't all roses and butterflies. Some of the things I had read online made it sound like there were armed gangs at every turn, ready to take you out. It's really not that bad at all." Report Response

"Hope I got in!" Report Response
