No Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The questions that my interviewers asked were NOT original questions - there were from a list provided by the school. I was asked the EXACT SAME list of questions in both interviews, Furthermore, I was not allowed to expand on any of my answers to the questions because I was cut off by my interview with an unrelated question. Both of my interviewers seemed more concerned with getting through their list of questions than actually evaluating me as a candidate." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that the questions were provided by the school and were only generic "what is your personality/are you a good person questions" rather than questions about my research or what makes me uniquely qualified." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my worst interview thus far. Walking out of this interview, I didn't even want to be a doctor any more. I loved the school's curriculum, campus, track programs, and basically everything about it, but after such horrible interviews I can say with 100% confidence that I would take a gap year before going to a school that cares so little about recruiting good candidates."
