What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"What is your ACT score/MCAT score? I scored not so well on my standardized test so I think they wanted to see how I do on tests in general. I should have mentioned my GRE now that I think about it. I did pretty good on that one, too bad that one doesn't count!" Report Response | I was asked this question too

"What would you say to a person who says: "I would like to know my father's condition, please tell me before you tell him. I don't think he can handle any bad news."" Report Response | I was asked this question too

What was the most difficult question?

"What is the most recent book you read? I hadn't read any in while and the interviewer asked me to give a synopsis of the most recent one!" Report Response | I was asked this question too

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over this website, my AMCAS appication, relevant issues facing health care" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was friendly. I also had heard so much bad comments about the facilities and Dr.Case. I found this to be untrue. The student union is nice and they have a lot of construction going on." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much. I was hoping for more questions from one interviewer and less questions from another one, I think she asked me 30 questions in 50 minutes!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Practiced: "Who has been the most influential person in your life?" and the book question." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was really nervous to begin with but Dr.Case helped settle my nerves. He asked a bunch of questions that I had prepared for to a certain extent and I may have stumbled on one or two. The second interviewer was very nice and really wanted me to just talk about myself. The third interviewer spouted off question after question. It was intimidating but she was nice too. Overally, I'm not sure if I made myself stand out any more than the next person, although I'd like to think so. Good thing is, if you don't get in, you can set up an interview to go over what you need to do to be a better candidate for the next go around." Report Response
