What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"OK. There's no test at all that you have to take, so don't sweat it. I don't why some people previously posted that on here. Because I apply for the MD-only program, if I'm in, I will have to deal with whole bunch of high school kids. Oh god, can it get worse than this?" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Since I only applied for MD-only program, this was how the day went. A student from MD-only program came and talked to us about the program; they only have 5 slots for this program, so good luck to ya. He informed us that the ana. lab is very small and sucks because they don't have cadavers for students, only pre-dissected parts are available; so if we want real cadavers, then we have to take an elective at somewhere else. They don't have any combined degree program except the BA/MD one for high school kids. After the talk, we each went to our one-on-one interview. I was first cuz I was the only guy there, I think. My first interview went smoothly but I thought I blew it until the doc. told me that he will try to get me in...hmm...but he was really cool though..my second interview was a lady from non-medical field. I thought our interview went really well until I asked her how I did; she said I need to be more specific and detailed. I guess I made her assume too much; but I'm like lady I told you everything I know, what else do you want. After that she said I'm done for the day so I went straight back to my work. At my computer desk, they sent me an email saying that I'm not really done yet cuz there's a tour of the building and my picture needs to be taken. Great, but I wonder if I should go back to do all that frivolous stuff since I already degraded this school so much heheh. That was how my interviewing day went. Pretty bleak heh! I know."
