How many people interviewed you?

What was the most difficult question?

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN feedback - questions posted in early October of last year were repeated almost verbatim. There were a couple of other questions not on that, but they were of similar type (ie. what do you think of such and such personal characteristic, and give me an example of a time you have demonstrated it)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Jane, the lady conducting the interview is SUPER nice, as has already been said by all the other posters, but I would like to echo" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It was difficult to not get clarification on questions - there were a couple where it would have been helpful" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, I was nervous going in because I didn't want to come off sounding like I had already prepared my answers since I saw many of them on this board beforehand. Luckily, they were phrased slightly different, and when it came right down to it, these questions are mostly answered by gut reaction. The purpose of this interview is to see if you are a good fit for Mayo, and I think the questions are pretty good at addressing concrete values. I'm not sure there's really a better way to prepare than to simply be yourself." Report Response
