    I have an interview at Stony Brook tomorrow, Thursday, that I was only informed of last week, and I am flippin' cuz InterviewFeedback.com is down. Has anyone interviewed there before? If so, what was it like, and were any out-of-the-ordinary questions asked? Any info would really help me out at this point!

    Thanks. One.

    Hi,

    I interviewed at Stonybrook last week. I thought it went pretty well. :) I was interviewed by the director of the PICU and she was really nice.. She asked me ordinary questions--"Why and When I wanted to be a doctor?" "What are the biggest problems in healthcare now?" "How would you help upgrade the level of healthcare in America?" Overall it went well.

    The campus is nice, but huge. If you're taking the LIRR, you're going to have to get on these campus buses that'll bring you around to the medical school. It is extremely suburban with very little community activites (Everything closes at 9:00pm except for the local 7-Eleven).
    The students are extremely nice and not very competitive at all. With a small class of only about 100 students, everyone knows everyone.

    Don't freak out. Everything will be fine and you'll have a good time there. It's real laid back.

    Best wishes.

    okok, I'll try to be more helpful...the interview will depend ENTIRELY on the person interviewing you...it is impossible to generalize. (just pray and hope you do not get Harvard Lyman as your interviewer...if you do, you're in for an hour of fun <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> ). Dr. Simon is an awesome interviewer (will be incredibly laid back and he talks so slow, you'll have ample time to think of an answer before he even finishes the question <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> ) That aussie from anatomy dept. (forgot his name :( ) is also incredibly cool interviewer (probably won't ask much related to medicine :D )
    These are all I know, good luck, and remember, however your interview goes, it means absolutely NOTHING in their final decision <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />
