What was the most interesting question?

"(Not mines but other people in my group got asked) If you could travel back in time what would you change? What was the nicest thing you've recently done for someone? Given your public health background, how do you control the obesity epidemic in America? Since there's only one guy in our panel today, what do you think if I (the professor) decide to play matchmaker and match you guys up? How about if I was a doctor and decided to play matchmaker on my patients? What do you think about it? Suppose you were sitting in lecture and I ask you a question and you space out. I decide to throw you a quarter and say in front of the class "call your mom and tell her that you are failing in medical school." How do you react and how will you deal with this? What newspapers do you read? If you could design a medical school what attributes would you include? If Touro does not accept you, what do you think would be the reasons why? How do you study? Individually or in a group?" Report Response
