    I was wondering if you all had any ideas for these questions:

    A. What if the interviewer askes about abortion. How do you say your opinion in a non inflamatory manner so that if the interviewer is strong either way, they will not use it against you.
    B. What about the ethical question about organ donations. I've heard so many different verisons (if Ross Perot has all the money to buy for his grandkid; if you had to choose between a housewife w/ 3 kids and a old lady who might donate a lot to medicine (like that would make a difference in medical condition or quality of life?)
    C. Tell me about yourself (I know this sounds silly, but where would you start? why you want to be a doc? what your hobbies are? the meaning of your name (like they care)? what????????
    I appreciate all your help, and good luck to everyone, and I really mean it
    :D :D :D :D :D

    You might try not getting inflammatory about it. It's nice to believe in something, it's another thing to get hot-headed about it.

    I'd first bring up the option that you can't just randomly throw organs into people and that there are things called waiting lists for organ recipients. Secondly, money does not equate value of life. I'd remark that it is indeed a difficult question since there's so many variables. If perhaps s/he could be a little more specific, perhaps I could discuss the ethics of such a choice (and correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not the only one making the decision on whom to 'choose' for such a condition).

    Ever been in a bar? Tell them who you are. Go try meeting some new people, it can give you some practice talking about yourself. These people want you to talk to them as humans, not robots that recite what you think they want you to hear.

    At least that's my opinion, I've been on both sides of the interview for grad school, but never med school.
