    The room would be lightly dimmed so as many of my facial features will be hidden. I would stare him/her in their eyes and slowly word with my lips...."Kony 2012" and walk out.

    I went through five of these at different allo schools. Make sure you do your homework; it's a chance to stand out.

    One question I always asked:

    What would you recommend I do (or add to my plan) over the next year before I hope to matriculate, that would make me a better-prepared medical student?

    Learn about their programs, have questions there though they're mostly for fillers. You're there to sell yourself. Go get em champ.

    Sorry OP for this being completely unrelated to your thread, but typicalindian...is the moving picture with the 2 boys dancing a youtube video and if so, can you provide a link? Every time I see it I want to see more cuz I feel like it would be a good laugh.

    The only things they can really help you with:

    -Depending on how much time you have, things you can do to strengthen your application (work/activities). Possibly which activities you should highlight.
    -Insight on to your personal statement

    I feel like anything else you ask them is really just for your own speculation. LizzyM offered a valuable opportunity this past winter with an "Ask me anything" style thread.
