What are your general comments?

"I was happy that I kept my answers short and concise. He probably liked that. Maybe they were about two minute long responses. He or she will ask questions about your responses and be sure to build off of that. He or she might explain a lot about themselves and what they went through and what they look forward to in their career. Be prepared to work off this. Be interested in them and what they do. I think my interviewer was impressed with me and asking him questions about this. Try to laugh and smile. I tend to do this often. Don't make it awkward or creepy. I think if you do it right you'll look more friendly and NORMAL. This is one thing I was told by an SGU grad, "Don't turn out to be a serial killer in the interview. Be normal, you'll get accepted." That's what I did and guess what happened.... Be comfortable because it's a conversation. You should be comfortable talking about yourself. Dont stress too much. As I said before, if you are comfortable with yourself and know you are going into medicine for the right reasons then you have nothing to worry about. Also the best advice graduates of medical schools said to me is "take what you learn on these sites with a grain of salt. a lot of these people go through different experiences than you." Remember that. " Report Response
