What was the most difficult question?

"didn't have a specific "hard" question, but "What do you want to get out of med school?" kinda get me, b/c I didn't know exactly what he was asking. (When in doubt, ask the interviewer to clarify.) I answered it in a way that combined the questions "why medicine" and "why Wayne", but later on figured out that he meant to ask "what kind of specialty you want to go into?"..." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read this website and the school's website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Wayne is right next to a group of health care facilities that cover a wide spectrum of specialties. It's great that everything is all together! Also, Wayne's students are extremely active in their community. Extracurricular activities range from free clinic to educational programs. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Detroit is an interesting city... Looks great, but inactive to an extent. Great researches going on at Wayne, but I didn't get a feeling that students were too involved in what's going on in the research departments..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The public transportation system in Detroit is not very developed. The only ways to get from the aiport to the school is by taking a taxi or renting a car. Neither is cheap... (expect about $40 one way for taxi)!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My student host was extremely helpful. She answered more questions for me than the student who led the tour, but both are very informative. The whole interview day consisted of a 30 min tour, lunch w/ current student, and a 60 min interview... nothing else. I need to ask about financial aid before they led me to their financial aid office. (btw, arranging rides with local cab company maybe cheaper.) " Report Response
