What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Where else did you apply? Why Brody? How would you fit in here? have you been to greenville before?" Report Response | I was asked this question too

What was the most interesting question?

"very basic, conversational questions to learn more about my background since the interviews are closed-file. talked about the school's history, how faculty end up there and the draw to training at brody-- easy conversation" Report Response | I was asked this question too

What was the most difficult question?

"nothing too difficult-- talked a lot about the idea of training in eastern NC, which is difficult if you want to leave your options for your future open but still try to work into their mission" Report Response | I was asked this question too

How did you prepare for the interview?

"looked through interview feedback, read through my application materials and essays, reviewed the brody/ecu website and conferred with a current student about suggestions for the interview" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"how happy the students were; the fact that the pitt county hospital system is the tertiary care center for eastern NC, leading to a lot of exposure as a med student. also, the staff and interviewers were friendly and tried to make the interview as conversational as possible, which was incredibly welcoming" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the isolation of greenville and ECU. the lack of room to consider options outside of NC or primary care post-med school. also, the students were really nice and incredibly happy but my tour was lead by married students, which was difficult to relate to as a possible peer" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"i didn't know how the closed-file interview would go. it wasn't bad, just a little repetitive. what i did appreciate was how their system really helps ECU choose a class that will fit its personality and mission statement, which i think is important for NC" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"overall welcoming, friendly experience. the school has a specific mission that they want to fill and i appreciate that they do. the day is set up to find applicants drawn to staying in NC to work in those underserved areas that the state is full of. i didn't see myself fitting in with the student body only because of my background-- i was especially impressed with how happy students seemed, how satisfied they were with the education and how much they felt like the administration was doing all that it could to help the students in any way possible-- collegiality is evident here!"
