What impressed you positively?

"I was interviewed at a regional location, so I only got to meet a Duke alumni who practices in California. He was really, really nice and took the interviewing very seriously." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I wish my interview was open-file so that the interviewer would have had some backgbround. What I didn't like is that he forgot to tell me that it was closed-file (he later apologized), so that during the first part of the interview I omitted a few things which I figured would have been repetitions from my application. Later, as I realized he didn't get my references to the application, I backtracked. If you are not sure if it is open/closed file-AKS." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How "down to earth" my interviewer was even though he went to Duke Med School." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very enjoyable conversation. I didn't feel that I was being questioned, but at the end I felt as if I got all of my points across. I was a little concerned if the fact that I had a regional interview would have a negative effect. But I was reassured by the admissions secretaries and the interviewer that it will not. We shall see. At least I didn't have to deal with all the other stressed out over-achivers (j/k)." Report Response
