What impressed you positively?

"One of my interviewers was a fourth year student on the admissions committee. Strangely enough, he was also my tour guide right before the interview. While I got the impression that he took his job seriously, he was still laid back and enthusiastic -- a very comfortable interviewing environment." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The second, faculty interviewer gave me a stoic stare which lasted well after I had finished answering each question. At times, I felt as if he were questioning the truthfulness of my experiences. It was as if he expected more than the answers I had given, though I was not about to ramble on when I felt that I had adequately addressed the question. His lack of acknowledgement and emotion left me weary at the conclusion of the session. It would be a tragedy to have him as a teacher or as a physician. " Report Response
