Anyone else put off by the "red flag" question at NY Med? During the information session before interviews you are told that your interviewer will be asking you about any "red flags" in your application--something glaringly bad like a sememster of low grades, etc. I was annoyed by the presumption that every applicant has some deficiency that needs to be explained away, and my interviewer seemed to think I should have some ready-made answer to this silly question. When I told my interviewer my overall G.P.A. was a tad low but that there was nothing in my file that merited the designation "red flag", she seemed a little annoyed as if I had weaseled out of the question. Apparently this is a standard practice at NY Med interviews. I think it's tacky and reflects poorly on the school. I realize that the school is giving applicants a chance to explain any weaknesses with this question, but the way it's handled just rubs me the wrong way.
