"The interview was very relaxed and the interviewer just wanted to get to know me. One interesting thing, however, was that when he got to my MCAT scores and grades, he did something weird. He told me that my MCAT scores were only average for the school, when I know they are WAY above average (in the 30's). That struck me as being odd. Then he went on to say that he would have a hard time explaining to the admissions committee that my course work was acceptable because I hadn't taken prerequisites for almost a decade. I graduated from CU in 1996. But within the last two years, while working as a full-time hospital attorney, a part-time professor, and a part-time military magistarte, I completed 30 semester hours of prerequisites (a year each of chem, o chem, graduate-level biochem; and a semester of physiology and physics) with a gpa of 3.95.

My best tip for anyone who wants to do well on the interview is: Do at least one mock interviews with a doctor you've come to know well, and let them judge your performance after you finish. If you did well, congrats, you'll probably do well on the real ones too. If you didn't, or if there was a moment during the mock interview you stumbled, make sure you work on it and improve.
