View Full Version : Interviews in Sudbury
04-03-2006, 10:20 AM
The forum has been a little quiet lately... I was just wondering how ppl found the Sudbury interviews...
I was in the first group Saturday morning, and I felt that the interview was "ok"... I think my answers were good, but it was how I answered that wasnt the greatest - did a lot of hmm-ing and rambling :( A couple of questions were pretty tough, but overall, I thought the interviewers were quite friendly.
I was unable to stay for the afternoon tours. Can anyone tell me what they thought of the tour of the actual facilities? I was really wishing that I could stay to tour the building, but I had a long drive home afterward.
Oh, and the current med students mentioned that there was time in the schedule where they look at disected specimens... does this mean there isn't any cadaver disection at NOSM?
Well, may May 15 come fast!!

HI in response to your note, we do not have a section for anatomy or dissection, all of our curriculm is integrated. Other schools donate sections to us for the day so we can view them but we do not dissect. There are many advantages to this school but that is not one of them.

I interviewed at the same time as you.. and felt kind of the same.. my very first interview I was pretty nervous, and I think it showed.. and then my second one was a really tough question (for me) to answer, PLUS the person interviewing me was NOT really friendly, and really RODE me for the whole thing.. although a lot of people in my section said the same thing, so perhaps he was instructed to be that way.. WHO KNOWS.. after that though, I thought a lot of them went really well, haha.. and I also did some rambling.. (does everybody?.. i hope at least some of the charter class did some!).. but overall, it went well (I think, I *hope*).. I wonder if we met Saturday morning??
The tour of the facilities was good.. it wasn't extremely long, but there is a TON of STATE OF THE ART equipment.. you can tell that the school has money.. tons of video conference equipment, medical training equipment, research stuff, LOTS of access, and lots of space for the students.. it's really a phenomenal facility.. I think if you get in (ahem.. *when*).. you'll love it!
Ugh.. the wait is going to be TOUGH though.. 400 interviews is a LOT!
Good luck to EVERYBODY though.. There were definately a lot of really cool, fun & down to earth people who would be so Awesome to go to school with! :rollin

I had the same experience in T. Bay during my interviews. There was definitely an interviewer who was instructed to be cold/standoffish.
As for the wait.,...it's driving me nuts! :\

Yes, my interviews went well also! mine was April 1st at 2pm...i also got the stern-looking interviewer in two stations...they warned us in the pre-interview talk there would be a ..."spherical-object buster" ...so i prepared for it before i even walked in any of the rooms...i found the questions to be well organized/designed...
yes, the school is a beauty. Techno stuff all over the place...i was drooling!

I screwed up last year...how i did things this year is light-years different then last year...
Lets hope it pays off. :)
