    @erita105 Thanks for sharing! And congrats on getting through the interview!

    I know it sounds strange, but one of the biggest things that is making me nervous is forgetting the names of the panel members after the interview. Do they give you a business card or a chance to write down their names during the interview so you can send a thank you afterwards? Or do you have to just remember...

    thanks for sharing your experience! I am from a big city as well so am nervous that Nashville is going to be very strange for me. However Vanderbilt in general is the place I feel I align best in terms of missions and philosophies. Did you enjoy the actual surrounding location?

    I just got a job offer today at a local childrens hospital, I dont know what to do!!!! I want Vanderbilt more then anything but am nervous to turn it down and then end up jobless lol.. any advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks snfairfax! I feel like I worried way too much, because the questions seemed quite straight forward. I would say all but one of my questions were situational based. It seems really difficult to infer how I did because they all seem like they would be smiling and friendly regardless! I can say that if anyone else has a Skype interview and you encounter technical issue don't fret! My video wouldn't come on when they called me, so they said "You know what, you try calling us". Fingers crossed, and best of luck to everyone else on their interviews!

    Had my interview yesterday, and hopefully it went really well! Lots of situational-based questions, so really focus on the event, action, and result/response, just like it says to in the informational powerpoint. Also, just as a heads up they write as you talk. But everyone was so friendly, and the medical center's campus is beautiful! Waiting until mid-April is really going to feel like an eternity..

    Good luck to everyone else interviewing!
