What was the most interesting question?

"What do you see as today's biggest problem in US Healthcare?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"None of the questions were too bad, both student and faculty interviews turned into friendly conversations about my past and my future plans." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Did my homework on the school and all of the future plans (new country hospital, 4 new buildings with Keck donation money). SDN, lots of newspaper reading." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was incredibly friendly and seemed genuinely upbeat about the positive direction that Keck is moving in. Of course 100+ million dollar donations always help. The opportunities at Keck seem diverse and exciting. It's very unique that they are affiliated both with a wealthy private hospital and the exact opposite in the County Hospital. Gives students a chance to see the whole spectrum of treatments in US healthcare." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The library certainly could use some improvements. The campus is tiny, but that's the nature of big city schools. The LA traffic definitely sucks. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing that comes to mind. It was dead week so there were no classes to observe." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very, VERY relaxed. No complex or controversial questions. As expected in a closed-file interview, a lot of the time was spent discussing my background. Be ready to talk about yourself, you don't have a choice about it." Report Response
