2

What was the style of the interview?

One-on-one

What type of interview was it?

Closed file

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

""Why UofL?" (Although my interviewer phrased it strangely. I sat down and the first thing she said was "so what brings you to Louisville?" and that threw me off a bit.)" Report Response

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

"Generally, just went through the experiences on my primary." Report Response

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

""I'll be going in front of the admissions committee in a couple of weeks. Is there anything you would like me to tell them or anything in your application that you think I could address to help your chances?"" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"All pretty par for the course." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"One interviewer asked questions directly from my primary, one asked more conversational questions with no reference to my application. Just depends on who you get, I guess." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Had various people ask me "commonly asked questions". Also recorded myself reading my primary and secondary applications, so I could listen to them on the drive up. Never hurts to sear your application into your memory." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How helpful the faculty seemed and how much the students genuinely seemed to love the school. The curriculum was well structured too, in the sense that if you have an interest in research, public health, etc. there are several "distinction tracks" that give you a path to follow." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The location of the medical school/medical campus is separated from UofL's main campus. To describe the area, I'll put it like this: I drove in the night before my interview and saw people sleeping outside on the medical campus sidewalks. That being said, it became a natural topic of conversation when I asked the faculty and students about volunteer opportunities at the school. Everyone acknowledged it very openly and spoke highly about the public health programs that address these issues." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Very minor thing, but I wished I had brought a folio or notepad with me. I figured they would hand out at least a folder and some note-taking paper with their welcome packet. Guess I could have just called the admissions office and asked. It was my first interview though. I'll just be more prepared next time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, very happy with the facilities themselves, the faculty that I was able to meet, and the students. There seem to be plenty of volunteer, research, and other extracurricular activities. Haven't received their decision yet, but would be happy to attend." Report Response
