How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, AMCAS application, Wake Forest admissions bulletin." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"All the students seemed very happy with their decision to go to school at Wake Forest. The system tries to foster cooperation over competition. Also, Wake gives its students lots of patient interaction early on (the school is adjoined to the hospitals). The faculty are very receptive to students' comments and complaints." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was made abundantly clear that the learning here is very intense and stressful at times. One admissions officer made it sound like the students hardly have any time to do anything but study. Also, at the lunch with students, the host from the admissions office was there with us, so I got the impression that the students may have been less than honest with some of their answers about the negative aspects of the school." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Wake doesn't let you do any electives until your fourth year." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"There were three interviews, 20 minutes each. The interviewers had only seen the personal statement from my AMCAS application beforehand. Two of the interviews were just conversational, while the other one was designed to make you think on your feet about some non-conversational questions (see below). It's just key to remember that the whole point isn't your answers, it's how you handle yourself while delivering them." Report Response
