What was the most interesting question?

"If all health issues were eradicated in the world such that you could not have a career in medicine, what would you want to be?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"In a situation which impacts your path towards your goal, some will like to collect all the information they can, what are your strengths? (I was a bit confused by this question and my faculty interviewer’s follow ups were quite tough, she seemed to want to hear something specific that I couldn’t put my finger on)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Mock interviews were moderately helpful at straightening out the tell me about yourself/why detroit, but the rest of the questions were a bit unpredictable. General MMI/CASPer/Bioethics practice for the MMI is fine. I read parts of the student handbook and most of the website. Specific community service opportunities are hard to find on the website but you can ask the medical students about them during lunch." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Friendly medical students who were open to answering any question. The tour of Detroit was definitely the best part of the day. The interviews were pretty well organized for such a packed day. I felt that MMI was really well made and not too stressful. MMI interviewers were so nice and chatted with you instead of letting you sit in awkward silence after you finish." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish the school tour had been a bit more comprehensive and that we could have a lecture about curriculum and other things, especially because some stuff can be tough to read about from the website. The lunch was honestly not great, but since we are given a home base to leave bags in during the tours/interviews you can definitely bring a snack of your own. The adcom people who came in to answer questions at the end were not super transparent but were really encouraging. Also, the students talked a bit about the huge class size and that’s something I don’t think I would like that much." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The Faculty interviewer knows your application really, really well so you can talk about yourself without going into too much detail about what you did- they just want to have a conversation with you and may bring up random topics in order to do that, so just go with the flow. There are a few ethical/scenario questions weaved into the student interview, which is very structured." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I feel like they got several opportunities to see me perform when faced with questions (and in a quite standardized way.) I don’t feel that I know too much more about the school than I did before going in, but with the sheer amount of people interviewing there, I can understand why it can’t be as in depth and sales-pitchy as other schools. I would still be happy to go there and they know that lol" Report Response
