How did you prepare for the interview?

"I studied my AMCAS app, I reread my secondary, I read all the questions that are on the SDN about LLU, I asked friends questions, I made a huge list of questions and asked the ones I still had remaining when I got to the interview. Turns out I totally over prepared because the interviews were both just hanging out and getting to know you type interviews. It honestly felt like I was just hanging out with old friends." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"I really liked that they paired me up with people that had a lot in common with me because it made the interview really enjoyable and like you were one really great first dates. The first interviewer was from near where I lived and had 3 kids that had gone to my school and then the second one was a 4th year med student who had also gone to my school and was engaged to someone I knew so I really felt comfortable in both interviews. Also, both interviewers were SO NICE. They felt like old friends by the end and both stayed over an hour to talk. I really enjoyed my interviews." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The process of getting the interviews was rough. I didn't know until a few days before when my interview was and by then the plane tickets were super expensive since I live far away. That was really frustrating. Also, they spelled my name wrong when they went to email me about my interview (even though they had emailed me many times before) so I didn't get a confirmation email until the day before the interview so that was stressful." Report Response

"How relaxed and easy-going the interview would be. I was nervous for nothing!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This is a super faith-based school so you really have to know that that's something you want to be a part of if you are wanting to go here. That's super important. It's talked about a lot so make sure you want that to be a part of your education. If so, it's the school for you!" Report Response
