What impressed you positively?

"The interviewer was VERY nice and he really knew my file well. The new hospital that's supposed to open in 2004/2005 should be nice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour- a couple of first year students were supposed to show us around, but they didn't really know where to take us. They said though that they had the same experience on their interview days but once you're a student there, you're treated really well." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Make sure that you find the location of your interview ahead of time b/c navigating some of the corridors might be tricky. Also, my invitation to the interview said that I should arrive about 1/2 hour early, which I really didn't need -but I didn't drive there...(leave yourself maybe 15 extra minutes at most to find your interview room). If you're driving, you will definitely need extra time- parking is a major issue (as I learned from a few people there)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was very nice and chatty- my interview ended up being longer than 2 hours... He knew everything about me from my file (though he didn't have it in front of him). This was a really low-stress experience. " Report Response
