What was the most interesting question?

"None! Most of the questions were very straight-forward questions regarding my MCAT scores, how I envision my life as a doctor, etc." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"It seemed that the interviewer was solely focused on finding out why I scored so low on my second attempt at the MCAT, especially my verbal score. Even before I had a chance to answer her question, she rudely interrupted by stating, "Couldn't it be the fact that at one point you were in ESL?!" (FYI, I had immigrated to Canada when I was 10 and yes, I was in the English as a Second Language program for like... what... 1 year?!?!) Come on! By now, I don't think my days in ESL have anything to do with my results on the MCAT! I got a freaking "T" on my writing sample lady, hello??!" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Checked out the site, interviewfeedback.com, practiced mock-interviews, read up on current healthcare issues, spoke to different doctors I work with (I'm currently working as a physical therapist in a hospital setting)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Affordable student housing, friendliness of the students." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewer, the location, the grunginess of the hospital I interviewed at. My interviewer was a pathologist, so the location of the office itself was pretty close to the morgue! sheesh!!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was the most demeaning interviews I've ever had in my life! I know that some people I've met that day had a really positive experience and really love the school, but the interviewer just blew me off with her rude comments and racial comments regarding Asian-Americans. At one point, she said things like, "I think it's really hard for you people (yes, she said those words and later I found out that she herself was a foreignly-trained doctor from some where in the South America) to get adjusted to the western lifestyle because it's so very different from how things are in the East." Enough said! This was obviously one ignorant lady and I hope the school never uses her in the future. I just read the previous posting dated 03/29/02 and I wonder if the writer of that post and I had the same interviewer?!" Report Response
