    Hey gang,
    I'm running a little late in the game and I was wondering if any altruistic applicants out there would give me a hand. I recently sent out my AMCAS but I'm still waiting to get my secondaries. If anyone would give me some of the questions I would be eternally grateful, since that would let me start up some of the essays and keep me from getting even further behind. I need questions from:

    Johns Hopkins
    Washington University in St Louis
    Duke
    Stanford
    Univ of Alabama in Birmingham

    Thanks

    Here are the questions for Duke:
    Short Answer:
    1) What aspects of Duke's program in med education interest you and why?
    2) Among the service activites that you listed on your AMCAS application, in which activity did you feel that you truly made an impact on someone? What was the impact on you?
    3) Describe your most relevant clinical experience in medicine thus far.

    Essay:
    Describe a difficult moral or ethical situation that you have encountered and how you dealt with it. What personal strengths, values, and beliefs helped you deal with this challenge? (1000 words or less).


    Hope this helps and good luck!

    There's only a 1 page essay for Georgetown. The prompt says something like:

    Why did you choose Georgetown and how will Georgetown's program make you a better physician?

    Good luck!

    Thanks for your help s-pish and japhy! I really appreciate it and think it speaks volumes against the cut-throat perception of premeds that so many people seem to have.
