What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That is was definitely the wrong school for ME, but I have good friends who go there and really like it. Just keep your eyes open. My experience would have been totally different if I drew a different interviewer. I am usually a very positive person and can find the best in everything, but in this case I really was blinded by the interview experience." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a horrible interview experience. During the interview I decided that I would not ever, even if I got a full scholarship go to Einstein. At one point during the interview the interviewer asked "Since you are Hispanic, why didn't write you were a URM?" I replied "I am not Hispanic/URM." She said "Well, I just assumed because you look hispanic. And it says you speak Spanish and you lived in a latin american country in the past few years." We had been having a nice interview, but at this point she totally changed her attitude. The rest of her questions were attacking...and not the interesting and challenging kind, but just outright attacks on me...Her questions included "If you don't like Science why do you want to be a doctor"...I don't know where she got that? I did very well at a top school as a hard science major and had a very good MCAT...she then asked "If you are a doctor, you know that you are going to have to be able to read scientific articles?"...I guess she missed the part where I have published in peer-reviewed journals and given posters a national conferences....At the end she said, "So, I guess this was your first interview"....at that point I decided that I wasn't going there no matter what so I said (which also happened to be true)...so I said..."Thank you very much for your time, but it was actually my eight....thank you for your time"....I withdrew my application the next day.
