What are your general comments?

"When you arrive you are able to speak with medical students and ask questions before they take all of you to get started. The students love the technological advantages they are afforded and say that they are like a close nit family there. The dean spoke with us and gave us a rundown on the short history of the schools medical program and the direction it was heading in the future. Then we had lunch during which time we were able to chat amung our selves and to speak more with medical students. Following lunch we had our interviews which are two separate one hour interviews. Mine were back to back so I was interviewing for two hours. My first interview with Dr. Epstein was low stress and he practically wrote a book about the answers to the questions I was giving him. Mostly it was just tell me about your self up to this point and he interjected with some questions now and then. You could tell he was supposed to ask me a few specific questions because he was trying to remember what to ask and I was asked some of the same things in both interviews. My second interview with Dr. Skilling was not as conversational and relaxed. He started by telling me he did not look at my file because he likes to start with a clean slate not knowing anything about you. It was not high stress but I was possed ethical questions and joted things down when I answered. Other than the ethical questions both interviewers were fair and nice. The entire experience was a good one and it is encouraging to see how much the students enjoy going there and they are all very laid back." Report Response
