How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read the questions posted previously, but I decided not to prepare answers. I did not want my answers to seem scripted in any way. If I am right for Mayo, they will know it and so will I." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Mayo is the only school I've had experience with that actually lets the candidate know when they can expect to hear about the next phase of the application process. That is greatly appreciated, particularly in light of the fact that many shcools don't even let the candidate know when the application was received." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This is a telephone interview which replaces the secondary application. In some ways it is more difficult than writing an essay because the answers are very important but there is little time to think about the answers. That is a benefit in some ways because it is looking for some core values to determine if the candidate is a good match for the Mayo tradition and philosophy." Report Response
