What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer found out that I hadn't had a student interview (I don't think any of the applicants did), so he took me downstairs to try and find me a medical student to talk to. We didn't end up finding the student, but I was really impressed that he cared that much to go out of his way to make sure I got all the information I needed/wanted." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"So I know that Davis has a standard list of questions that they give to the interviewer (we were even told so in the orientation), but my interviewer didn't ask me any of them. He didn't ask any ethics-based questions or anything like that -- there was no question that could have had a "wrong" answer. We pretty much just had a conversation. He asked about my family, my college, my research experiences, my time abroad, etc. It was very low stress. I had worried earlier that I was under-prepared, but there wasn't anything I could have been more prepared for. All in all, it was a pretty good experience. I also liked the students I met there -- they seemed pretty laid back, not at all like the competitive, intense, constantly stressed pre-meds that I too often meet." Report Response
