What was the most interesting question?

"If you were in the room with a patient and they asked you out on a date what would you do? What are your views on dating patients? I ended up saying that I was married and either way I would have to say no to the patient. Then he asked me what I would have done if I wasnt married, and I said that of course I would say no because it would be an awkward situation and not worth the problems it could cause." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"There werent really any... But one interviewer did ask me about healthcare. What do you think the biggest problem in healthcare is and why?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN feedback questions... Looked over my application and essays again." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything. I LOVE TECH. I didn't realize how much I would really love this school until I stepped foot on campus and felt like I was at home. The students and faculty are the best part of this school. They are amazing and I think since I am a non trad student, I really fit into the vibe at Tech." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really. I love Lubbock. It kind of sucks that you have to move in the third and fourth years if you are matched out of Lubbock (into Odessa or Amarillo). But since I am married and will be buying a house when I move there, if I get in, then I will more than likely be able to stay in Lubbock." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing. I think Tech is pretty much what I thought it would be..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Our interview group was huge... There were 70-75 people interviewing that day. It was crazy. From everyone I talked to after the interviews, everyone said that their interview was great. It kind of made me worried because I am not sure if I would be able to stand out... Also, right after the interview was over, the interviewers told us that they would be meeting with the adcom to discuss us. It seems like they make decisions pretty quick, but we wont know the outcome until November 15th. That was kind of nerve racking, but its not Techs fault." Report Response
