"Where do you see yourself in 10 years...of course, this is a trick question at Brody." Report Response | I was asked this question too

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read others' feedback, school web pages." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The students themselves seemed to have a genuine sense of family among them. The learning environment was open and modern, not cut-throat like some other schools." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The closed file interviews were very difficult for me to feel like I was making a connection since every quetion seemed like the kind of cocktail party chit chat you engage in with strangers to fill time: "So where did you grow up?...What was your major" and so on." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I made the mistake of letting it slip during my interview that my husband's profession requires he work in a large city. In my post-rejection follow-up interview I was reminded that living in an already medically overserved city "does not fit the mission of Brody." Also, being a relative newbie to NC, I was deemed a flight risk. Before your interview say this ten times: Underserved, primary care, North Carolina." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, so my jitters were higher than they should have been. Overall it was a very relaxed interview and I loved the school and learning atmosphere. The one-on-one time seemed like a waste." Report Response
