OK, so I'm a complete smart ass. Probably 90+% of the thoughts that come into my head are sarcastic/off-the-wall/etc. I'll joke with anyone--profs, waitresses, the checkout lady at the grocery store. However, not everyone seems to appreciate this. Everyone I've talked to about med admissions has been like "you're going to tone down your personality, right?" So for my first interview I did (for the most part). Now, I'm reading about people who are giving interviewers responses that sound like they came out of my head (ie. "I have nice teeth" or the chicken and the egg joke) and they're getting great responses from interviewers and ACCEPTANCES. So...my question to all of you is: Am I making a mistake by turning down (not off) my personality for fear of turning off an interviewer? Most of what I've read recently says yes. I'd love to hear what y'all have to say about it. Peace out.
