What was the most interesting question?

"If you had a patient in jail who faced the choice of having a kidney transplant or being on dialysis for the rest of his life, what would you do? What if someone who was not incarcirated could use that same donor kidney, who should get it? Kidney transplant vs. dialysis has no difference in survival, only quality of life issue. Okay, so now what if I told you now that a kidney transplant is MUCH cheaper in the long run that dialysis, should the prisoner get it now?" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

I deflated a lot after getting waitlisted, and went into future interviews much humbled, I think I performed better after this." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Good school, good interviews, great office staff in the admissions office. Really interesting fellow interviewees. Didn't interact that much with students, I wish we had the opportunity to sit in an entire lecture instead of the 2 minutes we saw during the tour." Report Response
