What are your general comments?

"Most of the people that interviewed on my day had very laid back and casual, conversational interviews about things from their application. I was not one of these people. My interviewer opened with Tell me about yourself then went straight into ''If I couldn't go to medical school in the US would I go abroad?'' ''At what level of income lowering would I no longer want to become a physician?'' ''What three countries have the most nobel prises in medicine? In economics?'' ''When did nobel prizes begin to be awarded?'' and so on and so forth. We talked a lot about my thoughts on health care reform, insurance, and malpractice. He really wanted me to take a strong stand on issues but I tended to be moderatein my opinions. He did end up liking me and told me so. The later part of the interview was basically trying to convince my to stay in Oklahoma. So if you get someone that you feel is grilling you think about this: they want to see that you can stay calm and composed and collect your thoughts quickly. Most of the questions had an underlying purpose like wanting to make sure you knew exactly what you were getting yourself into and that your motivations for becoming a physician are good. They are not trying to be mean but just trying to get to know you and your opinions and how you think. It might be challenging but if you can get through an interview like this I think it makes a very positive impression. " Report Response
