How did you prepare for the interview?

"StudentDoctor.net, read my secondary application, research papers (my own and the MDs I interviewed with), three mock interviews with MDs at an academic hospital." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The relative ease of both of my interviewers, and how much they loved the school. Both could not have been more different. The first was a new faculty member who had returned from private practice after 40 years to teach. The second was a young pyschiatrist who had stayed in academia all of her life. However it was clear their love of their fellow faculty, students, and medicine was what led them to Chapel Hill. Also, the admissions office went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The students who gave us our tour made sure we didn't have any questions and gave us more insight on their lives (one was married, one was single, I thought a good mix). I went here for undergraduate and finished grad school somewhere else, so I may be just a tad bit bias." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really, my interviewer was changed the day of (I expected that talking to current students and reading this web site). " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Make sure you plan on where to park before you get there. I already knew where to park having graduated from here but I heard multiple people complaining that they did not realize they were going to have to pay to park or they could not find parking at all." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I did not have the question one, two, three type of interview. While practicing with other MDs the biggest advice I was given was to be myself and ask myself what I truly believe, don't feed them BS. I did just that and I think it went well. Also on this website is the advice of one previous interviewer "The reason you are being interviewed isn't to try to foul you up and see what is wrong with you, but instead learn more about you because up until now you have done everything right to earn this interview.""
