"the fact that interviewers did not display a whole lot of emotion (poker face kind of deal) i started to feel like I was boring them with my answers, but it turns out that's what they did to everyone. However, They were very polite, fair and direct, and never tried to trick me in any way." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"how well i was gonna get along with the med students.. i would have taken more time off to hang out. Also how you leave without any idea of how you did. it could have gone either way, but i'm happy that I went regardless since the experience was very pleasant and the people were incredible." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I believe that 30 minute interviews are too short, and you basically end up answering the same questions twice without really going into any detail. Spend the night with a med student, they were of great help to me and helped me out throughout the whole process" Report Response
