Just wondering if you guys who are in the preparation to apply to medical school have done any extensive researching of schools you are applying to? I am just curios because I am almost for sure they would ask something like, "What do you like the most about our program?" or, "What made you decide to apply to ___ Med School?" I was listening to the Stanford admissions Officer a few weeks back and he seemed to be emphasizing that the applicants know in depth the school they are applying to. I am definitely going to research the schools I apply to, but to what degree should someone know about the school. If for example a average pre med applies to 20 schools, should they research all 20 or should he/she wait till they get an interest letter from the school or a call. Then I start to think, well what if someone calls me in the middle of the day unexpectedly and asks me a question about their school. Situation like that would be rather embarrassing, yet at the same time we can't be expected to know everything about the school. Tell me what you guys think?
