What was the most interesting question?

"Role play: One of your long time patients with terminal cancer calls you at a busy Friday afternoon. He (in a nutshell):"The pain is getting too much, no chance of cure, talked it through with my family and gonna take a bunch of sleeping pills tonight. Just wanted to say goodbye and thanks for everything." Me:"ehmmm..."" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Role play follow up: The patient ends up taking the sleeping pills and dies. The next morning you are called to sign the death certificate. What do you put as the cause of death? (If this is supposed to present an ethical dilemma of some sort I don't get it. Seems too simple)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"AMAZING SCHOOL" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I walked out of the interview feeling like I didn't manage to impress the excom rep at all. We just didn't connect well and I felt as if he was getting a bit annoyed with me towards the end. I could be wrong. Regardless, the school ended up asking me to come in for a second interview with a different panel b/c there was a "divergence of opinions" after my interview. I'm sure glad someone stood up for me! 2nd interview was night and day difference!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That students can request a 2nd interview if they don't feel the excom rep would be willing to fight for them. I am just glad that the school asked me to come back on their own accord." Report Response
