What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I shouldn't have talked so much about OMMS. I was trying to express my open-mindedness considering the subject, but I may have simply come across as ignorant in that area. You can navigate the entire interview without bringing it up, and I was dumb. So don't (unless you know a lot about it and are excited about it)." Report Response

"Very supportive school with a multitude of opportunities. However, board prep seems to be a bit more self-directed than at other school where I have interviewed. However, there IS dedicated time for studying for COMLEX and the USMLE." Report Response
