How did you prepare for the interview?

"- Went through the feedback posted on this site by other people who interviewed at Queen's over the years to get ideas of potential questions. Kept a list of the most popular questions and what my answer to them would probably be (this was great preparation as I was actually asked very similar questions to the ones posted on this feedback site!). - Stayed well-informed over the previous several months on the current health care system in Canada, Canada Health Act, evolution of the health care system over the years, Romanow report, problems in the system and some of the debated solutions/changes. - Read through my essays and biographical list that I'd submitted as part of the application package."
