What was the most interesting question?

"Of the three people I had in my interview, one of them continued to talk about what kind of physician he wanted me to be and never gave me more then two minutes to answer a single question: for example: I see that you are a C.N.A. I talked to my wife about this, she is a R.N. I respect you for this. You work with a lot of sick people, that is very good, I want all of the future physicians to do this....on and on, I felt like I was in a lecture. " Report Response | I was asked this question too

What impressed you negatively?

"No graduating class (very, very negative, talk to any doctor), no scholarships so expect to pay A LOT. No aggreements for clinical experience or residency programs outside of VA, not good for someone from PA. They had the answer to acceptance immediatly after the interview was over and sent letters out as you were sitting in the very seat. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"See above. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was laid back, too laid back. They will continue to talk and talk and give you little time to respond. The whole attraction to the school is their "relationship" to VTEC which, even they admit, is not set in stone. NO accrediation which means if they do not get accredited you are shit out of luck.At the end they informed us that they made their decisions already and we would be hearing the next day. Basically, they wanted you in or out even before the seat was cold. " Report Response
