What was the most interesting question?

"Who is your hero?" Report Response | I was asked this question too

What was the most difficult question?

"Rank your reasons. I felt this was somewhat unfair as I don't really see these as separate entities, but a part of one whole. For instance: what good is patient care if you do not do competent work, and vice versa. They pushed me to rank them anyway." Report Response | I was asked this question too

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I practiced questions I found on SDN with my spouse." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The pioneer spirit among students and faculty. The students have a say as to what should happen as the school grows and develops." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Converserly, the school is underdeveloped and does not have a clinic. I was asked if I had any questions and mine was this: "What are your clinical criteria/expectations?" The response was obvious guarded body language. They seemed to attack my knowledge of the school, saying, "we don't have a clinic yet." "I'm aware of that," I said, "but what will you expect of this current year's class?" The answer was fuzzy at best. I did not get the feeling that they even know what they want as far as clinical experience goes." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I felt as well prepared as I could have been. I would have liked to know that the (marketing) tour ended at 2:30, not 12:45 as I was told. This made getting to my plane on time quite a harrowing experience." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This seems like a promising school, but I felt that once I probed into their clinical curriculum (or lack thereof) I felt I was conducting an interview instead of being given one. They were quite defensive about their lack of a clinic." Report Response
