How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read this site (found it very helpful); talked to first, second, and fourth year students that i know at the school about their interview experiences and overall experiences at the school so far; self-reflection; read the newspaper; review AMCAS! (I got tripped up remembering my MCAT scores)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The unique culture at the school. There is a definite sense of camaraderie and pride among faculty and students. LSU knows its students are prepared to compete nation-wide." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"My blind interviewer did not do a good job of helping the conversation along. I had heard about the blind interview where you are asked to begin telling him/her about yourself, but didn't prepare for a one sided conversation, where I wasn't asked follow up questions or for more details. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall it was positive. Dr. McCluggage is tough (everyone including the receptionists will tell you that), but nothing that should throw off someone who is well-prepared and has given a lot of thought to the career choice being made. He wants to see that you know yourself and understand the commitment you are preparing to take on." Report Response
