What was the most difficult question?

"The first interview grilled me on the question "why medicine." I've prepared a good list of reasons, yet she kept on making comments like "You could've be a nurse to care for others," "You can get a PHD and teach" while I was trying to emphasis the "combination" of all these things. She also spent at least 5 min telling me not to get pregnant until after residency (I'm married). Over all, she was very intimidating and it wasn't a pleasant experience. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This was my second interview so I didn't do much to prepare for it besides browsing through the school website, which was useless since one of the link to an informational page wasn't working, and I couldn't get the downloadable video file to play on my computer." Report Response
