    Can anyone give feedback for their interview day? The feedback on the SDN feedback page doesn't seem that helpful at all... Much appreciated.

    One of my friends did her interview and basically said its kinda disorganized a bit. You gotta know the timings of your faculty and student interview. There is a tour at 12 and lunch at 2. She also said nobody is "holding you hand" during the day. Even the tour and lunch and even student interview is optional. You have the choice whether to attend or not.

    There’s no organized info session or check in or anything. The only requirement is the faculty interview at the time you signed up for but I highly recommend also signing up for the student interview and attending the tour and lunch. The students who gave the tour were super nice and informative and had great things to say about the school

    I was early decision, but it was pretty laid back. I arrived like ten minutes before my interview and there was a few other interviewee's in the room. My interviewer called me in and we talked for about an hour. Then we went on a tour with a student and had lunch. ED applicants don't have the option for a student interview, so after lunch we just left.

    Interview day is pretty straight forward. Either you have a morning or afternoon interview, tour and lunch around noon, and optional student interview depending on when your faculty interview was.

    I was ED and had afternoon faculty interview (1 or 2pm if i recall) with no option for student interview. RD should be pretty similar except for the student interview part.

    Interview itself is traditional more or less but can vary depending on the interviewer. The faculty is not necessarily a physician either. As long as you know your application and present yourself well, it’s relatively stress free. My interviewer was a research scientist and we had a great time ripping apart my sophomoric research efforts that I flaunted in the apps.

    The e-mail said it won't affect us.

    "...will not be negatively affected in any way". But we lose the chance for the student interview to positively affect our application.

    It's neither, honestly. The M2s who do most of the student interviewing have their mandatory preceptorship on Thursdays and won't be around to conduct interviews and no M3s or M4s were available.
