What was the most interesting question?

"You turn a corner and hear two patients talking about you. What would you most like to hear: "I love my doctor." (Referring to your compassion), "I trust my doctor." (Referring to your integrity), "I admire my doctor." (Referring to your medical technique, such as surgical abilities), or "I respect my doctor" (Referring to your medical knowledge).

What was the most difficult question?

"Think about what you know about healthcare today, and consider what healthcare will be like ten years from now. How is it different? How is it the same? (Not horrible, but a difficult question)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Studentdoctor.net was the best tool... the questions about "what do you do for fun?" etc. were very accurate for one of my interviews. I almost knew the question before they asked it." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"SIM LAB! It's an amazing tool for training doctors and not all schools have it. They also use standardized patients as a training tool. My interviewers were great and made the environment fairly low stress, and one even joked around with me a bunch. There are also a LARGE variety of research opportunities, but they don't advertise them all that well online. Also, the students are great in that they aren't cut-throat competitive, but instead work as a team to learn." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They only give 6 weeks of study time for the Step 1. I know that's average, but some schools give more time. I also wasn't a fan of walking all over campus to find the interview rooms." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That I needed to walk inside to get a parking pass. I was worried I needed to print it ahead of time, but it wasn't discussed in the email." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It's a great school, and visiting it made it go up on my list. I would definitely consider matriculating here because the atmosphere is great, the technology for teaching is amazing, and they teach using the systems method (discuss one system and all components of it at once) instead of individualized classes that aren't directly connected."
