"The questions that derived from three medical ethics scenarios." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read interview feedbacks here, read recent Ross SDN posts, skimmed through Ross' website, watched their official YouTube videos, read all their official advertising emails, reviewed my resume and application essay" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer. She was very welcoming and treated me like a valued person. She introduced the three interview parts (medical ethics scenarios, personal experiences, Q&A) to me at the very beginning of the interview so I felt less nervous and less uncertain. Some scenario questions were challenging, and she allowed me some time to think when I requested. At the end of our interview, she informed me that it'd take about 4 weeks before I hear back from them, and she explained to me about the next application stages following the interview. She was very experienced, informative and warm." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"While I was thinking hard on one of the medical ethics scenario questions, there was someone next door talking loudly, and obviously, the wall between us had zero noise absorption effect so I heard him word-for-word clearly and my thoughts were disrupted, which made me super anxious." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That they are going to grill me with those medical ethics scenario questions. The average GPA is 3.2 and the average 2015 MCAT score is 495 (for accepted students I guess)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer said the reconstruction after the hurricane Maria SHOULD be completed in January 2019. The reconstruction may be extended, but they are unsure as of now. She also said that the LMU students are not sharing the exact same facility with Ross students. A recent significant new improvement made for Ross students is that they have implemented an individualized counseling system for clinical rotations. The students in the past received no help and no guidance while they were doing rotations; now Ross assigns one counselor (or someone similar) for each student throughout the rotation."
