How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, research the school, mock interviews" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The number of hospital and medical center affiliations that they have are phenomenal. It seems like they really give you a lot of hands-on experience, and they are really geared toward preparing you for the boards." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"That they let in over 250 people. The interviewer told me flat out that they admit a lot of sub-par students that couldn't get into other places. The interviewer said that they do this knowing that some of these people will fail out or quit, and still others will not pass the boards. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"What I stated above, that they flat out allow sub-par students. I kind of knew this ahead of time because they would have to in order to get 250 students. But hearing that it's true from the inside really turned me off. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interviewer was supposedly a hard interviewer, but I found him very easy. The questions were read off a sheet (I had to give my ACT and SAT scores, as if they matter). The best part was that it was really stress free, and I really got to say everything that I wanted to say. The interviewer also allowed me to sit in on his small group discussion about endocrinology before my tour. " Report Response
