Prepping for an interview, I realized that it might be nice to have a list of some of the most common and/or easily prepped interview questions.

I figure I'll start and we can all add, just like with that advice thread. This is better than working! Pretty much any question that isn't particularly school specific is good for this list. With luck, it'll get really long.


1. Why Medicine?
2. Why our school?
3. Why not [school closer to home]?
4. What if you saw a student cheating?
5. Tell me about yourself.
6. What's your theme song?
7. What's your 3-word motto/catchphrase?
8. Are you ready for the weather here?
9. Which three famous/historical people would you choose to have dinner with?
10. What are you most proud of?
11. What's your biggest flaw?

That's more comprehensive, and is better if you want to look at a specific school, but it's not so good if you're just looking for general questions. You have to read through hundreds of pages, each of which have at most a couple of questions, many of which are repeats. Ideally, this would be a broad-spectrum list that you can look at and see what you're not prepared for.
