What was the most interesting question?

"Expect some ethics questions and patient centered questions. This school is big on teaching physicians to be ethical leaders in their community, with a focus on patient needs over your own. I promise this is huge. Be ready for it. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Relax on the difficult questions. They don't care if you have a world class knowledge of metabolic pathways or diagnostic biochemistry. They may ask you a question that seems very specific and over your head. This is to see your response. They are looking to see if you BS your way through it, or if can say I don't know with confidence and integrity. They may do it just to see if you panic. If you know what it is great, but if you don't, DO NOT GIVE THEM YOU BS. It works in undergrad not in Med School. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Know your own convictions and goals, and be able to communicate them to the interviewer. They want passionate people with clear focused goals. You don't have to know what you want to do for the rest of your life, but you better be able to tell them what foundation you plan you future on. ie ethics, morals, convictions, loves, hates, social roles, family......" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Philo. He is the real deal. Philo is the perfect rep for A&M, what this school is about, and what it's attitudes are. He is there for you, and so is this school. Scott & White. I knew right away that this is where I wanted to be after visiting S&W. Temple is bad, but you will not get better clinical trainging than you will from S&W. Look into it, research it's history and national reputation. The physicians they draw, the inovative procedures that they perform, the experts that they have on staff. It's only down side is Temple, and that's not so bad since Austin is so close. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Temple, as a town. You will be too busy in the clinical years to worry about the town. It is best not to have the temptation anyway" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"To relax. please, just relax. Enjoy. And take note of the LRU. It is a little sanctuary for Med students only with everything you will ever need, and a full time staff to meet you every need, not to mention staff psychologists ,lawyer, and computer techs for you home computer needs. They give you everything you could ever need. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"They gave it their all. It was the best presentaton on any interview. They acted like they wanted every one of us, and they gave all they had. Some schools with more resources only gave enough to call it an interview day. A&M wants its students and they let you know it in the interview, and when you get here. " Report Response
