So I was looking at some practice interview questions for medical school before I went to bed last night in the event that one day down the line I get lucky and get one: (I know the questions aren't going to be exact, but there are some basic questions that you have to have a response for so you don't look like a clueless idiot in a hypothetical interview).... A common one asks what would you do if you weren't a physician. I honestly would do one of those teaching gigs in Africa or SE Asia, where you teach in a foreign country because I've always had this intense desire to travel (especially to those places, fascinated by those cultures. I know the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of most parts of the world). I've researched it heavily, and it looks like something I would do. Coupled with the fact that I have 4+ years tutoring at a learning center for kids, helping others in that aspect of life is something I could see as a secondary option. My questions is: Considering I'm applying OOS, does it look psychologically bad to a potential adcom that I'm going to leave the US? I.e, OOS schools are selective to their in state residents, and one of the reasons is that the logic is that people from that state usually stay in that state, and the resources and subsidies of that state's medical schools are conserved....so they might think, if this guy is willing to leave the US to live elsewhere, what's stopping him from leaving this state or allocating himself to another geographical area that isn't this state? Some of my OOS schools are California, where they are STRICT on OOS applicants. I know there aren't necessarily any RIGHT questions for a medical school interview, but are there wrong ones? Like the latter?
