What was the most difficult question?

""Why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself?" Some people love this question. I think it's a good question to take and make you own. But I think I sort of messed it up. I didn't know what to say, what not to say....I was all over the place. So this question seemed confusing to me as to what I should or should not go into." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Mock interviews with current first year medical students, mock interviews with doctors, and friends. Reviewed questions found in previous years, researched background of school and why it's good for me, outlined my own skills and also read over my own personal statement essay" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How relaxed the interview was. The group leader of the 3 panel interview was VERY nice. He came out and talked to me for a couple minutes and asked where I lived and just some general information. Really calmed me down" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The location of the faculty of medicine. It's right next to the hospital, so it makes sense that they located the faculty there. But the location is so dirty. I'd be worried parking my car or locking up my bike. Scary/dangerous at night. Fine in the daytime due to the amount of people around." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really. " Report Response
