How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read through sdn interview feedback, toured the campus and learned as much as I could about Loma Linda, practiced my approach to questions like "Tell me about yourself" and "Why do you want to be a doctor" (both were asked), prayed and asked those around me to pray for me!" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"How thoroughly the interviewers had read my application beforehand. Especially for my first interviewer, everything he asked was asking me to expand on different parts of my application, so I was talking about things I was familiar with and passionate about. Both interviewers really just wanted to get to know me better as an individual and were very receptive to the questions I asked about them and Loma Linda." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Interviewers acknowledged that there is a range of staff and students who consider themselves Christian but do not live out their faiths. I appreciated their honesty but it reminded me that going to a Christian medical school will not automatically make me a great Christian physician. It still requires great personal commitment and conviction." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"If doing Zoom interviews, you can log in ahead of the start time and see your interviewer's name. I was able to Google them quickly in the ~5 minutes I was in the waiting room which helped calm my nerves a little." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had a faculty interviewer first and then a student interviewer. I wish it was the other way around because the student interviewer made me feel much more relaxed but both were very nice and genuinely interested in getting to know me. I also found it very interesting to get to know them as well. Definitely make use of the time you get to ask them questions!" Report Response
