What was the most difficult question?

"The questions were related entirely to my background and application. Know your application inside out - I was asked very detailed questions that were intended to reveal whether some of the stuff on my appliction was embellished. The level of familiarity with AMCAS and secondary applications demonstrated by my interviewers was very impressive." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, school website, mailed materials from school" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everything! It is the nicest facility I have seen throughout the interview season. Everything is done on such a personal level - just a handful of interviewees each day, tours conducted on-on-one. In fact, the school is so interested in class "personality" that interviewers do not see your transcript for fear that it might prejudice their impression of a candidate. They figure that everyone selected for an interview is a capable student and base their decisions on your personal qualities and accomplishments rather than merely grades and MCAT scores." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I was a bit concerned about the religious influence at the school but almost everyone (tour guide and interviewers) emphasized that 1) the Jesuit tradition is open to all backgrounds and religions and 2) that religious mandate does not interfere (too much) with the education or Practice of Medicine. Just no embryonic stem cell research or abortions. If anything, the Jesuit foundation makes for interesting debate about ethical medical decision making." Report Response
