"It was a conversational interview so none of the questions were difficult! :)" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Went over the big questions like tell me about yourself, why medicine, what kind of doctor I want to be, some interesting extra curricular anecdotes. Something that was really valuable for my interview was having 3-5 stories/experiences that showcased who I was and used them in various ways throughout the interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were awesome and just really down-to-earth. Dean Arias is funny and dislikes "try hard" premeds which I loved. Don't answer her questions trying hard to sound smart!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Don't stress so much! They put so much emphasis on applicants being genuine people who are passionate about medicine and will be able to communicate with the patients of LA county. If you are you and don't try to over-sell yourself, you'll have a great interview experience :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my dream school and the interview just solidified why. They care about who their students are as people over stats. My MCAT was much lower than their 10th percentile scores and I got an interview still. It seems like they genuinely want all the interviewees to succeed on interview day!" Report Response
