What was the most interesting question?

"What is a trend in medicine that you think will backfire? <-- I forget exactly how it was worded but it was something like this. I personally said the focus on improving the speed of healthcare delivery, particularly in an acute setting, can lead to worse outcomes. This led to an amazing discussion!" Report Response

"Nothing really...it was conversational." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Primary, secondary, school info" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The entire interview day was set-up well, and events flowed very smoothly from one to the next compared to other schools. The facilities were top-notch, including both medical facilities and student facilities. It seemed fairly clear that students among the professional schools (law, nursing, etc.) interacted with each other, whether through electives or in the common areas. As a Maryland native, I'll tell you the location is great and safe (as long as you're not an idiot and wander into areas you shouldn't be in the first place)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"We had to find our first interviewers ourselves. Although the office gave us directions, it would've been nice to have someone show us the way considering most of us had not been on campus before." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I hadn't prepared so much! Truly, both of my interviews (I happened to have 2 faculty interviewers, which I understand is unusual) were conversational and nothing felt forced." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"As an in-state applicant, I was obviously interested in Maryland before I stepped foot on campus, and the interview day reinforced my confidence that I would get a strong education and experience here. They gave us a match list (which was super impressive), the medical center is fabulous, and I felt welcomed by admissions. Also, Shock Trauma is f*cking awesome!" Report Response
