INTERVIEW: GENERAL

One of the most important factors for getting into medical school is your interview. If you do well on your interview, you do improve your chances of being amongst the lucky applicants who are offered a position at the school. If you do poorly, regardless of you 4.0 GPA, average of 15 on your MCAT scores, and 5,000,000 hours of volunteer work and helping the needy, you can kiss that medical school goodbye.

Don't despair. Like everything else in life, you can improve your performance at the interview by preparing for it. Prepare, prepare and prepare some more.

You probably studied 25 hours for one organic chemistry test which was 25% of your final grade in that class. Organic chemistry was only one of 30 classes that you took in undergrad. The grade you got on that test will probably mean nothing compared to the impression you leave on the interviewing staff. You should spend many hours (preferably more than you spent for the chemistry test) preparing for this final hurdle of getting into medical school.

The purpose of this section of my WebSite is to describe how I prepared for my interviews (please check my disclaimer). Please note that there are many books out there that can help you in this regard. I highly recommend that you read as many of them as you can.
