What was the most interesting question?

"How much is too much?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Where do you see yourself in ten years? I said I was interested in surgery and the rest of the interview from there was flat impersonal. I don't see why that would have offended the interviewer. This school seems to be pushing for everyone to become Family/Rural physicians. Nevada is still hick country except for Reno and Vegas." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The campus is brand new and the students seem genuinely happy." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"If you are a white male with an average MCAT score (27-30) plan on applying twice - at least. They like to test your dedication. It's crap." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"--" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I feel like interviewers should be more neutral, but my student seemed rather put off that I was interested in surgery. My faculty interviewer was cordial and very enthusiastic about me - but so was my one last year and I was rejected in January. I wish I was a female diabetic amputee that worked for the Peace Corps. I would have it made." Report Response
