Top 10 Questions Asked in Medical School Interviews
« on: March 27, 2008, 12:18:41 AM »
Being accepted to 8 so medical schools and applied to 14 of them, the following are top 10 questions asked by Admissions Councilors;

1. Who are you? and why medical school?

2. How would a friend describe you?

3. Why do you want to be a doctor?

4. List three things you want me to know about you.

5. Why should we accept you?

6. Do you understand what the life of a doctor entails?

7. What other careers have you explored?

8. Would you consider a foreign medical school?

9. What do you want to specialize in?

10. What do you hope to get out of medicine?

Personal Remark: Out of the person-to-person interviews, phone interviews, I must say that the admissions staff take into consideration your posture, your voice, your confidence level, and most importantly the way you speak in terms of clarity. They like to ask very vague questions as a way to see inside you and who you are, the way you compose an answer. It gets a bit strenuous at times, one interview I had was over 2 hours long and we actually had a break in between, allowing me to eat with the admissions staff and asked me personal questions as in religion, ethics, culture. My advice to prospective students intending to apply to medical school is: relax, be calm, and trust in yourself. If you panic, just take a deep breath, and go on. If you stumble on a question or a remark, take it in, and proceed with the next one. These guys like to see how you carry yourself despite a mistake and how you rectify a mistake.
And take your time, don't rush just because you think they are rushing. They test you on this.

Cheers and good luck, fellow collegues.

Dealing with a panic attack during an interview:



A fellow medical student that interviewed in the same time as I did had this happen to her, but she reacted immediately and utilized damage control. This is what she did.

Diaphragmatic breathing, think positive, take deep breaths, and ask the councilors to be excused for a bathroom break. It worked, its best to think of something else whenever an attack happens.
