What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

"Explain one of the following terms in lay language. (I don't remember the terms, but it was stuff like ozone, DNA, metabolism, etc.)" More from this Member | Report Response

"Can you tell us about a time that you helped someone, and how you knew that you helped them?" More from this Member | Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Wrote out several pages of notes organising my thoughts on why I was interested in medicine, why I thought I'd excel in medicine, and some situations that had inspired me medically and scientifically. I read through these a few times in advance to be sure I could articulate them in my head, then tried to relax." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had some practice interviews with friends who were already in the programme." More from this Member | Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were really quite kind and realised that I was nervous, and while they asked probing questions, did not argue or take issue with my answers. Also, the interview was conducted by the associate dean of the school and either a recent graduate or a 4th year student, which I thought was a good way of doing things. Lastly, the campus was absolutely gorgeous and the city was friendly." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview panel, consisting of 2 doctors and a medical student, were very friendly and helped to make me calm." More from this Member | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was very early for my interview because I was so nervous that I'd miss it. I did have to wait for a little while, but then they let me in early to interview with a younger fellow who I think was either a student or a recent graduate, and the associate dean. They each had a list of questions which they alternated asking me, and they graded my answer on a 1-4 or 1-5 scale for each answer. I was given plenty of time for each answer and not rushed at all, and once I asked if I could think for a little while and there was no problem with that either. Last, given that we were done very early, the dean asked if I had any questions for them. This allowed me about 5-10 minutes in which I asked them questions about the program, and they were very forthcoming (much more so than some). I then was led to a "feedback room" where I filled out a survey form assessing whether I felt the interview was fair or biased in any way, and left with a brochure about the program. They asked me to wait until they came back to pick up the feedback form, and when they did come back, I was told on the spot that I had been successful!" More from this Member | Report Response

"An interview panel of three people sit in front of you, each holding a folder containing questions. They are friendly, and want to 'have a chat with you'. " More from this Member | Report Response
