How do we know that you're really committed to becoming a great physician? (The actual question was worded in a much a nicer way, though)." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Did several mock interviews (with advisor and med students). Prepared for those mock interviews like they were the real thing, and I made sure to get feedback and make improvements after each one. Studied the school website and made a list of things that I felt made MCW really great. I made sure to prepare a positive, honest response for any weaknesses in my application. Also prepared a few good questions to ask about MCW. The preperation made a huge difference and made the interview much less stressful." Report Response

"The interview day was really great with the exception of one thing: it would be better if all students could interview shortly after arriving so they're not stressing about it during lunch and the tour. Staff was great at answering questions and helping us understand the process. It's great that MCW has a very short secondary applicaton." Report Response
