"Are your expectations idealistic (see "interesting question" above)?" Report Response

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

"Why are you working in analyticial testing/pharm dev instead of as a research tech?" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Do you think that your hopes of building relationships with patients is realistic considering that primary care physicians these days often shuffle patients in and out in 8 minutes?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The most daunting was "Explain your driving infraction..." followed by "Does alcohol ever cause you to miss work?" I was a bit thrown by the abruptness of the question and just hope that he recognized the sincerity of my remorse and the truth that it was a one-time mistake, an irresponsible decision that has never and will never be repeated. For those that don't realize it, it is exceedingly easy to reach an 0.08 without feeling impaired or knowing rationally that you should be over the limit. Bottom line, don't have any amount of alcohol, not even a single drink, if you will be driving." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over primary and secondary apps, read studentdoc, talked to friends at UNCSOM." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Curriculum - block schedule, P/F first year, H/P/F after, organ sys, ICM, early clinical experience, students spent several weeks in a community working with a primary care physician, giving students more control over 3rd year rotation/elective selection to prepare for career sooner Facilities - some soon to be completed, all very nice Students - may have been the free cookies, but all were very open and friendly and the guides were extremely helpful and informative SHAC - practically student run, with attendings to report to, local health clinic that a lot of students volunteer at Seem to be lots of opportunities to research and be involved in clinical care early." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I had a daunting interview session and left exhausted and not wanting to answer the "how did it go" question at all. Was pretty intimidating. But it's done; I just hope I get in. Construction at UNC is a continual process that can be annoying (detours, noise, etc), but the end results are always impressive." Report Response

"How rigorous the questioning would be. Be prepared to intelligently defend/explain everything you say." Report Response

"Enlightening to learn more about the school, made me more enthusiastic/hopeful about attending. Tiring and slightly disappointing." Report Response
