What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

""How do you feel about your MCATs?" " Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

""Where is the list of other med schools you're applying to?" She was under the impression I was supposed to provide this. WTF?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Einstein has a bunch of charmless weirdos doing their interviewing. Mine was no exception. She had the demeanor of someone who would rather be almost anywhere in the world than in a room with me. Her questions were asked in a half-hearted, going-through-the-motions kind of way. At one point she said in a foggy sort of way, "So do you like watching sports on t.v. and that kind of thing." Huh? " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The entire interview was difficult...she clearly was performing an administrative duty that she probably became bored with in, oh, I'd say the late fifties. She should be set out to pasture." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Usual stuff." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Not a thing. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I thought it was my atrocious interview experience that gave this school the air of a Soviet gulag, but I've heard others with better interview experiences also comment on the omnipresent gloom of the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was a very demoralizing interview; the completely undisguised indifference of the interviewer was a complete turn-off. The buildings on campus will not make your spirits soar. It honestly took several days to shake off the unpleasantness of this experience. The school has a solid reputation for pre-clinical and clinical education; I wanted no part of it." Report Response
