What was the most difficult question?

"Explaining a bad grade in my transcript. I took this as an opportunity to describe an upward trend. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Emphasis on humanism and bioethics -- not bs, since the College housed the Am Journal of Bioethics for years. I liked being attached to a major hospital. The students were happiest/most collegial I had seen, having interviewed at two top 10 schools. The school has a long history, and actually an impressive list of alums, ala their wiki page. As a history buff, I think it's kinda cool to have alumni who were decorated Union Army, World War I, and WW II surgeons. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The city was a little boring but at least close enough to major cities." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Probably would have been better to stay with a student-- they all seemed really nice. There is a decent hotel right across the street from AMC but it's a little expensive. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Although mine were totally conversational, I've heard that interviews are probably more adversarial than your run-of-the-mill school. I honestly think this is why AMC gets a bad rap on SDN. Those who have the highest stress levels seem to have the lowest impression. I don't know if AMC tries to weed out those who don't have thick skin, or whatever, but I had been in enough job interviews as a non-trad to know how not to be rattled. Remember-- you want a hard interview!" Report Response
