What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Before any questions are asked, you have to write a short essay... no big deal, you take about 10-15 minutes to answer one of 3 questions... just be prepared to answer one and you'll be fine. 1) Describe a life changing experience of yours. 2) What are three characteristics you possess that will help you in your pursuit of a career in medicine? 3) Who is an inspiration to you and why?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"What do you think will be the most difficult part of living on island for you?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"This wasn't difficult for me because I prepared from this website ;) but it would be difficult otherwise... Tell me about a current ethical issue in medicine and give me your thought on both sides of the issue. The interviewer was really cool and didn't even dig for more explanation once I gave a short description of one. Try looking up stem cell research, euthanasia, children's medical rights, spiritual beliefs in medical treatment..." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, SGU website" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer was an SGU graduate and he has only great things to say about his experiences. He also got his top choice residency, and an awesome one at that. The interview was very comfortable, more like a conversation than drilling." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you're making a one-on-one appointment with an interviewer in the States, they are going to ask questions from a sheet of paper they are given by SGU, and they ask those questions and jot down some notes about your answers, and send it back to SGU. My interviewer was not a part of the admissions meeting and decision, but his notes are used in the decision. But even though the questions were scripted, the interview was still smooth, comfortable and conversation-like." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Don't get stressed about this interview, have your answers down for the regular interview questions and review your app and resume. Prepare for one of the essay questions and pick a medical ethical issue to talk about and you will be good to go!" Report Response
