How did you prepare for the interview?

"Practiced the basic questions (Why medicine, greatest strength and weakness, background information, hobbies, extracurriculars, etc.). Additionally, I researched the school beforehand and watched the YouTube videos they have posted online. Overall, the interview was very conversational and my preparation did not help much in this instance (other than "why medicine")." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Everyone was extremely kind and transparent. The interview itself was very conversational and the first thing my interviewer did was introduce themselves in-depth and do some ice breakers. Overall, very kind people at the admissions committee." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much to be honest. There were a lot of individuals interviewing at once, so questions were quite difficult to ask during the student and financial aid panels." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

No Response

What are your general comments?

"Try to relax as much as possible beforehand. Watch some funny videos or listen to some music. Whatever you want to do in order to be in a good mood. The interview was extremely conversational and relatively informal. I truly believe they want to "get to know you" more than they want to ask you specific questions. So above all else, be yourself, and let your personality shine through to the interviewers. They are all very kind, so try your best to not be nervous." Report Response
