How did you prepare for the interview?

"Created possible questions that would be typically be asked at a med school interview and added the Northern Ontario twist to each. Mock interview at school. Repeatedly practiced with 8 minute time frame, so that I could pace my answer - fill the time, but answer under time." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Progress made in the previous two years (they actually have a physical location now), how friendly everyone was." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I keep forgetting how ugly Sudbury is." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You can't ask the interviewer any questions/they can't answer any questions about themselves. I wish I could have known what their role/position was (student, resident, community member, staff, faculty). Not new to me, but maybe of note to others: you are not allowed to bring ANYTHING into the interviews with you (no pens, no paper, no water). They provide you with water to bring to the interview with you. If you arrive too early you just end up sitting in a room talking with other nervous interviewees. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It's too bad that the Q&A session with the students wasn't before the interviews. It seems like anything (introductions, chit-chat) that is not part of your official answer is not part of the scoring of the interview. You have two minutes to read a senario/question on the door before entering the room to talk at the interviewer. The interviewers are instructed to give almost no feedback. They do have some follow up questions that they may or may not ask you depending on time, you would like to answer follow-up questions or if you had already addressed them in your answer. Eight minutes seems really long for one question, but in practice, it seemed really short and I had no problem talking for almost that lenght of time." Report Response
