Medical School Interview Consultation
The medical school interview is an opportunity for the admission committee to get to know you as a person. Many applicants view the interview as an oral examination, where the interviewer asks a series of questions, and expects you to provide the single right answer. As a result of this misconception, applicants spend hours memorizing answers to every possible question the interviewer could ask. The interview is not an oral exam! How you do on your interview depends on a number of factors. You have to provide thoughtful answers to questions, display professionalism, and leave an overall positive impression based on your verbal and non-verbal cues. In recent years, more and more medical schools are employing the multiple mini interview (MMI) format to assess applicants. In the MMI format, applicants are asked to work through various scenarios, solve problems, or interact with standardized patients.
What impresses me most about Admissions Helpers is their approach. Unlike many other companies who simply edit your documents, Admissions Helpers asks you to dig deep in your reasoning for applying to a professional school. By asking me questions they were able to help me find the true and genuine reasons I had for pursuing a professional degree. This approach changed the tone of my application toward an applicant with a genuine interest in the field. Through my experience with Admissions Helpers I learned more about myself and became a better writer. THANK YOU Admissions Helpers.
