What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"Tell me about yourself. (Both interviewers asked this. One specifically asked about my family/education/etc. The other just stared at me...be prepared to act normally if that happens.)" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"What is the worst experience you've ever had? Followed by what is the best experience you've ever had?" Report Response

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

"Is there anything else you'd like to tell me that isn't in your application? (This caught me off guard. Everything I could think of was in my application, so I just talked about personality and my strengths)." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"None, really. One interviewer asked me what I did when I was feeling depressed/down on myself to make myself feel better." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I was on academic probation for a semester - one of my interviewers focused heavily on that. However, it wasn't because it was a negative; he wanted to be able to hear my side of the story so he could portray me as positively as possible to the committee." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Checked recent feedback on SDN, talked with friends who have interviewed at the school (or medical school in general), reviewed my application, reviewed my research, read various lists of possible questions, read up on current health news. And don't forget to get some sleep and eat breakfast!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Great sites for clinical rotations (four hospitals within walking distance), prominent research (cervical cancer vaccine, stem cells), and state of the art facilities...this is a big one - UofL has one of the best patient simulation programs in the country, as well as one of the best standardized patient training programs. The 2nd year student with whom I spoke had more clinical experience than many 1st year residents." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The class was much more complete than I expected - 85% of the spots had already been filled." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My interview day was very laid-back and low stress. However, I was so nervous that it didn't matter too much. We had lunch, took a tour, sat in on a class, spoke briefly with the admissions director, and then had our interviews. One of my interviewers was an hour late, and so I was still waiting when everyone else had already left, but besides that, it was a fairly pleasant experience." Report Response
