Chief of neurosurgery at a certain U.S. university in the American south, which will remain unnamed:

He makes applicants cut geometric figures and shapes like circles, clouds, squares, snowflakes, from a piece of paper using scissors.

At the interview. So that he can watch them using their hands, observe whether they cut exactly on the lines on the paper, etc.

Bizarre but absolutely true
