What was the most interesting question?

"This was my most positive interview experience yet. The questions asked were difficult, but my interviewer was exteremely pleasant and I felt very confident about my answers. My interviewer really wanted to get a sense of who I am as a person, and that made me want to come to Wayne State. The most interesting question I was asked is if I could choose 5 people to sit in front of the Admissions committee at WSU and describe me using 5 adjectives, who would I choose and what adjectives would they use and why?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"A hypothetical question: "If every single profession existed in today's society EXCEPT that of physician, what profession would you choose and why". I was also asked a lot about my research and about problems with US Health care, which wasn't too bad, but I'm glad I prepared for those questions thoroughly! :)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read through the WSU web-site, really made sure I knew a lot about my research, Read the NY Times and other newspapers, really made sure I knew myself. I didn't do any "mock" interviews b/c I didn't want any of my answers to seem "contrived". I wanted all my answers to be genuine, whatever comes to my mind ansers. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The atmosphere at Wayne State. Everyone was extremely nice and courteous, and everyone (including my interviewer) treated me as if they really wanted me to go to Wayne State." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I am from New York City, so I had to fly in to Detroit, and there is no public transportation here, so I had to spend a lot of money in cab fares to my hotel and then to the school from the hotel, and the surrounding areas of the med school are not the best neighborhoods, but most of the really good med schools are in really bad neighborhoods, like hopkins and columbia, and penn, so wayne State fits right in :). " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known about the whole transportation system not existing in Detroit" Report Response
