What was the most difficult question?

""Do you think that only having X amount (less than 25 hours) of shadowing actually gives you an idea of what doctors do on a daily basis?" And also, "Tell me about your MCAT (referring to my low verbal score)" - She seemed to discredit me, and I'm not really sure that she liked my response to it. A few of her comments seemed somewhat snide." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, looked over my AMCAS application, searched through the website, talked with other students that have already had interviews, did a mock interview with a roommate" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"That facilities were awesome. I like how there is a ton of study space in the medical building for group studying and what not. Everyone there was really friendly and really seemed to love the school. I also really liked the fact that you typically only take one class at a time. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I didn't really like the fact that I might have to be driving long distances my 3rd and 4th year to do clinicals. That's really it though, I loved everything else." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How laid back the interviews were going to be! I thought that I was going to be way more stressed than I was, but they really don't try to trip you up on any trick questions or anything." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"From the beginning of the day they were saying to not be stressed out and to not worry about the interviews. And you really didn't have any reason to worry. My student interviewer was great. He really just tried to get to know me and see how I would handle certain situations. My faculty interview seemed to go pretty well too, though I'm not sure she really accepted my answer to my explanation of my MCAT score and one or two other things. Both interviews were very laid back, it was much more like a long conversation than anything else. I really had no idea this school would impress me so much. I would love to go here!"
