"how do you deal with criticism" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"where did you grow up and how did that environment affect you? (I had grown up in an ultra-competitive environment and the interviewer was very interested in it, probing a lot, as CCLCM is as least competitive as it can get)" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"describe your research. An MD asked me this, so I asked if he/she wanted me to describe it briefly. So I described it in 2 sentences using very basic terminology." Report Response

"Read everything on the website, SDN, emailing current students, studying/rereading parts related to my research..." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the city leaves much to be desired, weather, small class size, "vagueness" of evaluations (not getting a grade, even P/NP, is pretty scary and weird if you think about it)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"very long interview day. 7:30-4ish. However, you are pretty well-fed. The tour was also right before lunch and the interviews, so I was both anxious and hungry and tired. They took us to see biomedical imaging stuff which I had no interest in so I had to feign interest (as an interviewee, you KNOW you're worried about every little thing you do being conveyed to the adcom)" Report Response
