How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, looked up MMI and the types of questions that could be presented, read up on healthcare (recent events/newa and political views on the matter), brushed up on previous interviews." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The amount of community outreach opportunities, clubs with unique opportunities, and activities they have to offer outside of the academic aspect of medicine. The faculty and students are very friendly. and the administration is very attentive to their students' needs. The fact that they give exams on Friday, offer podcasts of lectures that aren't mandatory to attend, and provide students with iPads is definitely a plus as well." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The adjust in timing of the interview was a bit odd, spent about 40 mins waiting at one point but it's not as bad as other interviews. Some MMI scenarios were a bit heavy to answer given we only had two minutes to plan it out while being a bit anxious for obvious reasons (especially since this was my first MMI interview). It also didn't help that, because MMI tries to eliminate biases in interviews, it was hard to gauge how well my responses were from my interviewers. Lastly, the facility is pretty dated but the administration does do a good job in taking care of any issues that would arise." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"News and updates occurring at the school. Wished I would've practiced answering MMI questions ahead of time." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Schools seems really great to attend, yes the building is a bit old compared to neighboring Public Health and Pharmacy schools but Rutgers is very quick to fix anything, whether its a broken light, wobbly desk, any technological issue, etc. Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming and from what was shared, it seems that the faculty really care about the students and their wellbeing. MMI was a bit tough because it was a new experience but after the first few prompts, you get used to how to present yourself and answer the questions." Report Response
