    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; None really. The student interview was conversational. The other interview was very uninteresting. The Dr. had prepared list of questions and wrote down the my responses as I gave them. I'm not a fan of closed file interviews because I'm always asked for information that I've already stated in my amcas app more eloquently.
    &#61623; What can you tell me about yourself that can not be found in your amcas application? I know this question is typical, but it always stumps me.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; This is not a research school. (which didn't bother me at all) The best preparation is knowing yourself -really.

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; There was no real interesting questions. Just basically had a conversation.
    &#61623; He did ask why I did the regional and how I would decide where I wanted to go to school
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Call and find out when they are doing a regional interview. It cost's 125$ to do, but it ended up saving me a ton overall.

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; What do you hope to get out of medicine?
    &#61623; None, all relatively easy.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; I was really impressed by the openess of the faculty/students in talking about the pluses and minuses of the school. You will get a great clinical education/training. GW seems very supportive of it's student's individual goals and interests. They are not as strong in research but are working on it and research options are available. Their primaary focus is training practicing physicians. If you can manage the cost, your clinical education will allow you to go anywhere and be competent in any field.

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; What are you looking for in a medical education?
    &#61623; What would you say to the argument that if one were to go into public health, then he/she could help far more people then they ever could as a physician?
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; don't feel like you have to be original or creative in your responses in order to "stand-out"- just be honest, real, and keep your language simple.

    &#61623; why not nursing, since i told him my father was a nurse?

    &#61623; Basic questions why doc. role of doc. in society. and tell me about yourself
    &#61623; none
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; This school will prepare you the best for the boards, when you interview just be yourself and good luck....

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; none really ... they both asked me a couple of get to know you type questions, but most of the interviews were spent with them saying, "are there any questions you have for me?" :) Let's just say I had my share of questions and comments. But they were very friendly two-way conversations.
    &#61623; ... none really ...
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Just chill ... the interviewers are great ... the students are great ... the other interviewees are great ... just enjoy the day!

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Not much-very conversational/what are your hobbies, etc.
    &#61623; What is something about you that I wouldn't necessarily learn from just reading your application?
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Don't sweat it.
    &#61623;
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; None. Very relaxed, get to know you interview(closed file). Describe a time you had a leadership role? What do you do for fun?
    &#61623; None. Standard questions...What do you consider you're greatest accomplishment? What qualities should a good physician have?
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Relax. Be confident! You can guide the interview towards topics and things to showcase yourself since it's closed file.

    &#61623; same as above

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Can you handle the stress of medical school and working at the hospital for 48 hours straight? How will you do this?
    &#61623; None were difficult, just standard questions.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Don't come with an attitude. I was sitting in the main waiting room with the other interviewees, and a few had a cocky attitude. I didn't think it was appropriate considering the interview coordinator was in the room silently waiting for the rest of the applicants to arrive. My advice is to be yourself, obviously, but don't be discouraged if your interviewer gets personal into your life. Treat the interview as valuable time for them to get to know what you're all about.

    &#61623; Stay with a student if possible, enjoy DC, remember interviews are blind and prepare accordingly - be able to sell yourself + the school together.

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Everything was pretty standard. The faculty just went down the list of Qs in the form. The student and I just chatted and he only glanced at the form at the very end.
    &#61623; Role of a physician in the society. Not really a difficult question, but something that can be answered in many different ways. Also describing (in detail) a typical day of a physician. Be sure you are able to do that. They want to see you that you know what you are getting into.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Be prepared to talk about yourself. It's really like a job interview, so just try to relax. Also, I discovered there is no correlation between the quality of the interview and your chances of admission. I didn't think my interview went that great, but I got an acceptance letter 4 weeks later. Best of luck to everyone!

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; There really weren't any interesting questions. Since it was closed file they asked me about my activites, why I want to be a doctor and how do I know that, where I see myself in 10 years, why GW, how I relax, etc.
    &#61623; Both interviewers asked me a question on HMOs, which I was a little rusty on. Also, they both said "tell me about yourself".

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Why do you want to be a doctor of medicine and not a PhD, PA, or nurse?
    &#61623; Tell me about yourself (such a broad question!), why medicine, what field, etc.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; The day is fun, please remember that while they are trying to see if you would be a good addition to their school, you should also be trying to find out if the school would be good for you! Ask the students a lot of questions...they are there to provide honest answers.

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; My opinion about health care system, and what would I change and how would I finance it
    &#61623; same
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; just relax and be yourself
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Very conversational: Why medicine? How do you handle stress? What do you do for fun? How important is your teaching experience in being a physician?
    &#61623; Why a physician and not a PA or nurse?
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; dont worry.... it is extremely conversational.
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; I overheard my faculty interviewer mumbling to himself in yiddish, which I speak, so he asked me a lot of questions about my family and background
    &#61623; I hate the "Tell me about yourself" question
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Take your student interview seriously...they emphasize that it "counts" just as much as the faculty one
    1 Jan 2002 ( 4:12 PM) by Anonymous
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; none really...I was asked questons about my background, my life...if I got into Harvard, Hopkins, GW, where would I go?
    &#61623; What do you think is the ideal patient/physician relationship?
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; take it easy..most of the applicants had a very good time at the interview.
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; None. The interviewers were more intent on telling me that med school is really hard and that I probably wasn't ready for it.
    &#61623; None were hard. The thing that was difficult, however, is that I got interrupted a LOT while answering.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; I sincerely hope you have a better time than I did, especially if you go really expecting to like the school, like I did. Please keep in mind, though, that as far as I could tell, only my interviews were as bad as they were. Everyone else seemed really happy with how their day went. I guess that's life, though. We'll see how it works out in the end.
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Just like the others, the questions were standard meeting questions eventually leading into my interests in Medicine and GW
    &#61623; N/a
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Smile and enjoy yourself.
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; What is the physician's role in society.
    &#61623; There were no difficult questions- it was a very relaxed interview.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Seriously, I don't listen to people when they say relax, but that's completely what you should do. During the breaks in your interview, talk to the other interviewees- my group was really nice and it helps to talk to others to avoid getting nervous.
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Nothing really, just very basic questions.
    &#61623; None at all. I was asked why Medicine, why GW, what I do for fun, and if not medicine then what would I do.
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Nothing interesting. Standard questions. Why medicine? Hobbies? Tell me about activities. Asked about my research. Also asked what would be the hardest part of med school and what role doctors play in society.
    &#61623; Nothing difficult..but being my first invite, I was nervous and felt like a bumbling idiot!
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Relax! (I cannot beleive I said that..since I hate reading that myself!!)..but really..its ok..be prepared to answer questions about your research and activites. Also, being closed-file, you can decide what you want to bring up!
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Whre do u see as the mid-ground between fee-for-service care and HMOs?

    &#61623; What do you think is a physician's role in today's society?
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Use this website
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; nothing much, just Why MD? what if medicine is not around, what else would i do?
    &#61623; none...
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; know your self!
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; none I would call interesting...mostly just questions about what I have done and why I want to be a doctor
    &#61623; none were difficult...again just questions about me.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; just relax and be yourself. This was definitely one of the most informal interviews I have been on.
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; What is a physician's role in his/her community?
    &#61623; None really
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Prepare answers to basic get-to-know you questions
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; Very basic get to know each other questions. Very conversational. I felt like I wished there was more time to talk... it was that comfortable.
    &#61623; None really
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Fly into Dulles, unless National gets cheaper.

    &#61623; Some other advice:

    &#61623; relax -- the interview isn't stressful at all.
    &#61623;
    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; For the most part the student interview was VERY relaxed and conversational. She was very kind and informative. I think the students remember the whole nerve-racking interview process and thus are very receptive and easy to talk to. The doctor I interviewed with was a little antagonistic. The first question was "Why medicine when it sucks to be a doctor right now?" It was interesting because I overheard the previous person being interviewed and that person was not asked the same question. Hmm
    &#61623; See above. I think for the most part the people are trying to sell you on the school. realize that GW is VERY much geared toward training practicing physicians, not researchers and thus they are attempting to find students that fit their profile. This doctor also kind of scoffed at some of my research experience and some of my answers.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Have fun. The school really wants to be your number one choice.

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; The interviewer just asked me very generalized questions. The interview was closed filed so he could not ask anything specific unless I pointed the conversation in the right direction.
    &#61623; none.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; I think, strategically speaking, closed-filed interviews are excellent opportunities for you to elaborate on the aspects of your application that you think are the strongest. They also allow you explain your weaknesses without having the interviewer nit-pick them.

    &#61623; There were no hard questions. Very laxed. I mean, the student asked me what field i wanted to go into...and i said PC. He told me to stop blow smoke up his 'butt'...I think he was tired of hearing that, but i think later on in the interview, he saw i had a real interest in the field

They perform surgery, of course! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> ..)
    &#61623; What was the greatest decision you've ever made in your life? I didn't plan on making decisions of this caliber until I was PAST medical school! :)
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; All future applicants to this school should recognize that the purpose of their interviews is really just to get a sense of what kind of individual you really are--they have the stats, and the essays, they just want to meet you, and see for themselves who you are. Be honest, and upfront, speak whats on your mind, and let them make the determination of whether or not you're the kind of person they want to see in a future doctor.

    &#61623; Interesting/Difficult question(s):
    &#61623; I was asked to describe the typical day of a physician. I was then asked to describe my ideal day as a physician.
    &#61623; I was set up quite nicely for a very difficult question. I was asked why I wanted to be a doctor and when was the decision made to be a doctor. I was then asked to explain why I only had a couple months of volunteer service in the ER and no other clinical experience to speak of. A very fair question but I was rattled temporarily. They read your file and really think about it. Be prepared for anything.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Stay relaxed. Remember that they invited you to come so you must be doing something right. Also, the interview is just an opportunity for you to get to know the school and for the school to get to know you.

I was very nervous when I walked into the conference room but the interviewers' questions made me feel as if I was speaking to old friends and becoming reacquainted.
    &#61623; None....They basically ask about things that stood out in the AMCAS application. They did not ask any knowledge questions; they just want to get a feel for one's personality and what drives one to become a physician.

    &#61623; "Now, young man, take those crayons and draw for me where you will be 15 yrs from now"
    &#61623; I had the whole ethical book thrown at me: abortion, physician-assisted suicide, ideal healthcare, religion, politics. you name it, I was asked it! The ones I wasn't prepared for (what would your best friend say about you comes to mind).
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Take the time to read up on the new curriculum or at least email the admissions office to get more info on it. Have questions prepared. One interviewer was very pleased to answer my questions (which she did wonderfully, I might add) The rough interviews were actually a good thing. They showed this school doesn't haphazardly select its students. They really want kids (adults) that know about medicine and what it's going to be like as a physician and med student. For in-state tuition prices, this school is not only a bargain, but a wealth of opportunity.

    &#61623; If interesting mean unexpected, then I got a lot. (First off, I am a microbiology major, so this could be why.) I got questions asked about specific vaccinations, my views on abortion, assisted suicide, socialized medicine, and race equality. I was also asked for three wishes and some in depth information about information given in my essays. Also, know your current events.
    &#61623; What is the vaccination for diphtheria and if I had to make three wishes.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; If you are debating coming to visit the school, definately do it, and make sure to speak to the medical students. They are extremely helpful and will convey that the attitude of the students and the faculty is wonderful.

Oh ya, my first interviewer asked me what I thought about the recent finding that the mouse genome is 99% identical to the human genome (I did research using deer mice).

    &#61623; I have been to five interviews already. UF treated me horribly. This one lady interviewed me and in the midst of my interview helped an individual and wasted 15 minutes of my time. she had no respect for me and i had came all the way from the west coast. then, she asked me all those bizarre types of questions. questions that you'd fear of but then realize that no one really ever askes. science picky questions that i can't remember since i took the class 3 years ago. she was enjoying the way i was being tortured. well, i don't care. the ONLY REASON I WAS INTERESTED IN SUCKY UF IS BECAUSE IT'S DIRT CHEAP. but hey, i got into a better ranked school. UF is 40 something and they act like it's #1. ha ha ha. YOU'RE NOT!!!!!!!!!! so stop acting like your a god and get off your high horse and act like a normal being. besides, gators suck!! seminoles rule!!!

But some of the questions asked by both were: what would your best friend say about you?, What was the hardest thing you have ever had to do?, what's your motivation for pursuing a medical degree?, if you couldn't be a doctor what would you do?, what is a possible ethical situation a doctor could face and how would you deal with it if you were faced with it?
    &#61623; There were no real difficult questions asked. Both interviewers askedthe following: "So you want to be a doctor to help others..Why can't you help others in a different profession?..Why medicine? Perhaps if I had not been relaxed or hadnt given this thought before, I might have been caught off gaurd.

What major problems do you see with health care delivery today? How do you think this will affect your practice of medicine? What is the hardest obstacle you've had to overcome? What about you, do you believe will make you a good doctor? How did you become interested in medicine? DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME? This one is a TEST! You better have some good, thought provoking questions in mind! My interview lasted an extra 30 minutes (we had only used up 30 minutes of my hour interview up to that point!) because I was prepared for this question! More time to get to know you...
    &#61623; All were difficult, if unprepared...most are open-ended questions and if you get caught off-guard you'll be in trouble in a hurry!
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; As always, be yourself. Think about your reasons for entering medicine...there's no wrong answers (well, maybe some) but you have to be able to articulate it well. Think about who YOU are so you can answer the "personal" questions. Wear comfortable shoes, you'll be walking ALL day!

    &#61623; Alright&#8230;the first interview was with an ER doc who was very kind and helpful. Most of her questions came from my applications. Nothing difficult. She just wanted me to expand on things I had written about and tell her about activities I did not have room to put down. She emphasized that she was my advocate, and she wanted to have all the positive info on me she could find. I was very pleased with the structure and atmosphere of her interview. The next one was with an anesthesiologist and was in the OR. We actually had an interview while he was performing surgery for a major aneurysm. It was simply amazing to have an interview in such a magnificent environment. We talked about my school, volunteer experiences, and the procedure. The best part was he really paid attention to my answers and invited me back when the day was over to talk with him some more. Another interviewee and myself went back and stayed with him until around 6:30. It was an interview I will never forget. You should be excited if your schedule says go to pre-op.
    &#61623; Honestly there was nothing difficult. Be prepared for the OR. Some people may be a little squeamish about operations, but you will see it once in school.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Ask as many questions as possible. They want you to learn about the school.

    &#61623; If I thought there was a distinction between a person asking for assisted suicide in the latter stages of a terminal illness or a person asking for assisted suicide in the begining stages of a terminal illness, when they still had time left to life.
    &#61623; They are really just trying to find out who you are and if you really are committed to your decision to enter medical school.
    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; Know who you are and why you are there before the interview. Also, stay relaxed. The interviewers are not looking for a reason to reject you, they are looking for a reason to accept you. Go in with a possitive attitude and a list of things you want to tell your interviewer (ex. traits, interests, motivation for wanting to become a doctor). Then try to work these things into your answers.

    &#61623; Some other advice:
    &#61623; RELAX, be yourself, and don;t let your nerves get the best of you. If they do, probabaly by your first interview your anxiety will leave you.

    I know interviewfeedback helped a lot of students, so I'd really like it if people used the SDN interview feedback section as an alternative.

    I have e-mailed Dr. Graham Redgrave, the mastermind behind interviewfeedback.com and asked him if he could post a link on his website to SDN's interview section, but I received no response. I was thinking that if you guys could also e-mail him, then we might get him to link to SDN which would mean a larger interview database.

    I'm probably hoping too much, but could you just send a quick e-mail to Dr. Redgrave and ask for his support. The e-mail I sent is below, feel free to use it as a template. I found his e-mail address on his website: <a href="http://www.jhmi.edu/~gwr/" target="_blank">http://www.jhmi.edu/~gwr/</a>

    Thanks in advance for all of your help. I hope we don't bug him too much. I know I'm going to bug you all too much. :D
    Maybe I shouldn't put his e-mail address up here. I guess he can complain to me if he doesn't want it up.

    &lt;a href="mailto:[email protected]" target="_blank"&gt;[email protected]&lt;/a&gt;

    Subject: Would you be willing to link to another website that provides a similar interview database?

    Hello Dr. Redgrave,

    As a current applicant to medical school, I want to thank you for helping out all of the previous
    applicants. Every student that I've talked to who has previously applied to medical school has used the resources provided by interviewfeedback.com.

    As a programmer, I definitely understand the
    frustration of debugging; I hope that the issue with your script is resolved quickly. In the interim, I was wondering if you would possibly endorse another website that offers these similar services. Would you object if I asked you to post a link to <a href="http://www.studentdoctor.net/interview/" target="_blank">http://www.studentdoctor.net/interview/</a> so that the people who have already interviewed might be so kind-hearted as to reenter their information in this other database.

    I would greatly appreciate any assistance that you can provide.

    Thank you,
    MyFirstName MyLastName

    I applied to 26 schools. It was much more practical for me to check out the interviewfeedback site 2 nights before my interview.

    I should have contributed more to the interview summaries, but now I'm finding that its really hard for me to remember the questions for all those schools, and the impressions that I had of them at the time. But I'll try to go back in there and put whatever I can remember into the database.

    Looks like interviewfeedback.com is down permanently. I wish there was some way SDN could get all their old data and port it into their new system.

    Hello everyone,

    I just happened to have run into this site while searching for interview feedback sites. :clap: Maybe we can add these responses to those in the SDN interview feedback site. The site is:

    Enjoy,

    Hi guys, I just posted my interview for UCSD. I will try to post the remaining interviews later. I can't remember the exact date for UCSD but it's around that time. I think it should have been november instead of december.

    alright, so i feel hypocritical for not posting my interview feedback for a few days, but i've got an excuse -- i was sick. i hope this will all be transferred to the new database when it's up (lee, any word on when that'll happen :D) if anyone has any ?s about SLU, feel free to PM me. just make sure your PM box is clear so I can respond. good luck on your interviews!

    I assume BUMP is just used to keep a thread active...
    Since I'm new to the forum in general, I just discovered this thread. I think I have all the feedback for schools I applied to last year stored on my other computer. I'll try to remember to find them.
    :idea: If I don't post the feedback within the next week, can someone PM to remind me?

    -As of right now, Uranium ore is the biggest source of nuclear fuel and hence all the technology surrounding it already exists and can be bought and put into production immediately.
    - Australia being the biggest Uranium ore producer which is also in relative close proximity is a good source of fuel (the deal that took place the day after Bush's visit)
    - One of the biggest uranium re-processing facility is in Russia, which again is accessable. Hence making uranium based nuclear energy the best option for the short term.
    Thorium nonetheless is the future of nuclear technology.
    -For one the amount of viable energy that can be obtained from the raw ore is a whole lot more than the abysmal 0.7%/g of uranium or plutonium.
    -Since the yields are higher it is a lot more volatile. As of right now, the thorium based technology is still in early stages.
    -Ironically, due to the sanctions imposed after the 1998 Pokharan test, India is the leader thorium-nuclear technology. However, there is still a lot of work in terms of perfecting the technique to stabilizing the reaction in a large scale reactor.
    It also turns out that India may have the largest thorium ore deposits in the world... this in addition to the headstart with the technology, they might become the energy czars of the world in the next 30 years
