What impressed you negatively?

"The interview was like an MMI format, but was not advertised as so, 25 mins for 5 questions, 5 mins each, you get 5 mins to ask 2 questions at the end. It was two faculty members and I, one of the interviewers came 5 mins late and connected on her phone, not a computer (this would have been frowned upon if a student had done it). The questions were whatever, no why us, no why medicine, no tell me about yourself, just 5 random questions. At the end I asked a question about a new program which they didn't know anything about, I asked another question which was answered. I asked if I could ask another question (since my first one didn't get answered), the same interviewer that was late said "we are only allowed 2 questions, and we are actually running out of time", not a good look, ruined the rest of the day." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"This year (23-24) interviews are not like in past years where they are conversational interviews to get to know you as a person. It felt like an MMI format interview, but with the same 2 faculty at the same time. 25 mins, 5 questions, 5 mins to answer each, cold responses from interviewers, no connection to be made, no follow up comments. Felt almost like I was getting judged or dismissed." Report Response
