What was the most interesting question?

"I think most of the interviews incorporated a prepared ethics question. By nature of the question, the issues are difficult to grapple with and there is no right answer, but... we are facing a career full of such situations." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Apparently, the interviewer asked "Why did you choose BU?" What I heard was "Why did you choose to be you?" It was one of those akward moments where I looked at him with an expression of 'what are you talking about?' and he was looking at me with an expresion on his face that said 'who is this bozo? this is a standard question' After repeating the question, I caught on. Whoops." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, BU's website, AMCAS" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Nice facilites, friendly students, a general sense of satisfaction with the school amongst the BU community. I felt like the administration took time to structure a day that would let interviewees get to know BU. They made sure that we were able to speak to students in both the basic science years and the clinical years, they had faculty members besides our interviewers stop by to answer questions, and they had an organized intro. presentation and a dean who popped in throughout the day to answer questions. They also let you do as much or little as you wanted in the day... go to classes, talk to students/administration or just veg in the lounge. This may be just a coincidence, but I noticed that myself and several of the fellow interviewees were paired with an interviewer with whom we had common interests. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I felt like this was an interview where I really got a sense for the school. All in all, it was laid back and well planned. There are a lot of opportunities in Boston from research to patient exposure to culture and social life. I could see myself very happy at BU." Report Response
