What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You will have one long (~60 min) and one short (30-45min) interview with faculty. The long interview was very conversational and revolved around my activities and my motivations for pursuing medicine. The short interview is a bit more structured and my interviewer read several questions from a list they got from the admissions office. However, there were only 4-5 questions asked and then the conversation shifted to less medically relevant topics." Report Response
