What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The experience is really straightforward and you are treated with respect by the whole staff. Lunch was great, we talked to the financial aid coordinator, and got a really good run down of the curriculum. The interview was stressful, but in pursuing this career, physicians need to learn to deal with these nervous situations. Although the interview itself IS cutthroat, being confident in your abilities (but NOT cocky) and not intimidated will give the interviewers a great impression of yourself. Be honset in your responses, take your time, and you'll do fine." Report Response
