What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Tell me about yourself. How did you decide on medicine and MSUCOM? What will your husband and family do when you come here?(I like how she said, "when" not, "if". :) ) " Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"Would you consider the DO/PhD program, why or why not? What do you plan to do as a DO that maybe others don't, or is there some reason why you specifically want to be a doctor? What will you do when your patients don't follow your instructions....say the obese man hasn't lost weight in several years...what will you do? How will you handle that?" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"How much patient contact have you had and in what capacity? My interviewer was very big on having patient contact prior to starting med school. She was specifically interested in experiences outside of the hospital/ nursing homes or psych wards. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was so friendly and honest! The students were extremely excited about MSUCOM and answered all out questions." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"MSU is a HUGE college town. I've never seen so many undergrads in one place! The med school is a bit away from this, though, so the loud/partying isn't a problem we were told." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Mapquest directions really sucked. There are a bunch of one-way roads when you get off I96." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Fantastic! My interviewer clearly had a few ideas of what an MSUCOM student should be able to bring to the table and worked to find out if I fit her criteria. She was enthusiastic about my concerns and questions. This was the best interview I've had since high school. The interview was very laid-back and informal." Report Response
