"More of a "Tell me about yourself," interview. Questions pretty straightforward, right off the applications." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None. It was just a relaxed conversation. My interviewer's son was applying to med school as a nontrad like me so we talked about that a little." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read my app. A little brushing up on medical ethics/healthcare issues questions, but that wasn't really necessary." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was SO NICE. My faculty interviewer was great, and my student interviewer was cool too. The students seemed really happy. The Medical Center in Sacramento is really nice, and seems to be growing, construction all over the place. It's not really plagued by the financial problems many hospitals seem to be suffering from." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Mr. Dagang from Outreach is a little overbearing at times." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The fact that you may have to drive yourself from an interview with a faculty member at the Medical Center in Sacramento to the student interview in Davis is a little stressful. It's a pretty simple drive though, difficult to get lost." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Pretty nice interview day. Didn't see any other applicants which was weird. It would be nice to spend more time with actual students and less time with Mr Dagang. Again you'll probably need a car to drive yourself from Sac-town to Davis for your interviews." Report Response
