What are your general comments?

"Being in an underserved urban community, the medical students receive a lot of clinical experience, more so than other medical schools. I had a very good visit to NJMS. During your interview, be current with health care issues. They LOVE asking those type of questions. Since most people come to this website to discover the interview questions, here are the ones that they asked me: 1) What do you know about HMOs, PPOs, and third party pay systems? 2) What do you consider to be the two most important issues in health care? 3) Are you happy with your grades and MCAT scores? 4) Do you have any regrets? 5) How would your friends describe you? 6) What would they say is your greatest weakness? 7) How would you deal with a patient who does not want to take care of himself or herself? 8) If people do not know about health care services that are available to them, what would you do? 9) What do you know about NJMS? 10) Why do you want to come to NJMS? 11) Why medicine? Hope this helps! " Report Response
