So I had my first interview today at UMD in Bmore and I loved the school! I was pretty nervous leading up to the interview day and practciced qquestions and did my research on the school so I wasnt too bad today. Actually I was pretty happy going in. Some of my close friends from undergrad go there and I went with them to class and to anatomy lab. I was worried but it was soooo cool. I know I am a dork but hey I figure it's ok. Anyways, I had two interview and my first one went well except for the fact that he decided to ask me where else I was applying and I mean I was honest. I told him I applied to over 20 schools and then he asked which ones. I thought this was strange but I told him and then he asked if I had any other interviews. I told him I had a few but at the same time I was kinda weirded out by it. I mean does anyone else think thats odd? I just hope he wasnt thuinking I would prob get in somewhere else so he shouldnt offer me acceptance. Further, during my second interview I was asked why i would NOT want to be a doctor. I was totally unprepared for that question. After talking to my interviewer for a bit I realized he wanted me to start talking about healthcare and the problems facing it. I started to talk about what i thought were problems (such as doctors having their hands tied in certaion instances by the HMO) and then he started telling me how all these recent graduates think they can save the world because they are so idealistic and that it is not that realistic to do. Then he asked me what i would do if I were King for a day, I mean how would I save Healthcare? I was like I am that idealistic kid, i mean I am working for habitat for humanity during my year off for god's sake! I told him I would give everyone healthcare. Somehow, before I knew it this interview got very strange. We talked more and I think I came off as somewhat intelligent.. or at least I hope I did, but now I am worried. I mean the rest of the interview was GREAT! Just this this one blemish and a very weird one at that. I dunno if anyone can respond to this but I needed to get this off my chest and share my feelings of complete and utter confusion with everyone. BTW UMAB is incredible. I would totally tell everyone to go there. Bmore is an awesome place and the kids loved the school!
