What was the most difficult question?

"If you had to separate several horses from a herd to examine them, what two people would you bring with you to help, what role would you take on, and how would you do it? It was an easy question to answer, it was just worded strangely and I didn't quite understand what they were getting at at first. Especially since they started the question with, "So we've offered you a place in the class of 2017, congratulations." Instead of "imagine..."" Report Response | I was asked this question too

How did you prepare for the interview?

What impressed you positively?

"The program as a whole, the numbers of electives you can take starting second semester, the friendliness of the professors and students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The hospital definitely needs a makeover (though all the equipment is great, it's just not built for the caseload they have). Supposedly they should be starting to totally redo the hospitals and they will likely be done 2016 for 2017ers starting clinics." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If you can, pick an interview time right before or after lunch so you don't have to sit around and wait all day. If you interview in the morning you won't have your tours and stuff until the afternoon and vice versa. So you don't want to get there for an 8am interview and then sit around until lunch for anything else to get started. I had the 11:15 slot which was the one right before lunch which seemed to work out perfectly." Report Response
