What was the most difficult question?

"This program is a combined degree program, it is a BA/MD program, so the incoming students are all 17 to 18 years old. Thus, my interviewer told me that one of the criticisms of such a program is that the students are less mature and ready to tackle medical school, and may not be adequately prepared for it. She asked me how I would try to overcome this, and what I would do so that I wouldn't be inadequately prepared for the rigorous 6 year curriculum." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I had a pretty good interview day. I interviewed on the second to last day which I liked because I figured my app would be fresh in their minds. I thought my first interview went really badly because I felt like my answers were very repetitive, but I guess not because I was accepted and told that my interviewers loved me." Report Response
