One of my interviewers was a recent graduate from the MD program, and the other interviewer was a veterinarian that graduated from SGU (strange I know). Overall, they were very receptive towards me, and I got lucky, because the MD had attended the same undergraduate school as me, so we had a great time talking about faculty etc. Both interviewers made me feel very comfortable and told me that they would recommend me for acceptance to the admissions board. yay!

"The doctor was very enthusiastic about the school and education/opportunities they presented to him/their students. He was helping me, not putting me down. He told me that he did his clinical at the hospital where was shortage of physicians and most of the patients were poor and uneducated so he had an advantage of doing a lot by himself and learn a lot from his patients. That experience helped him later to pass USMLE Step II." More from this Member | Report Response

"He said he did his 3rd & 4th years at a hospital where many residency programs don't fill, so he got to do a lot more than the average 3rd & 4th year student. Most patients he saw weren't the most educated and therefore had a lot of complex issues which prepared him well for Step II. But he said he worked like a dog."

He asked some very thought-provoking questions, was respectful and conversational in his tone while conveying to me the degree which he enjoyed his experience at SGU. He spoke very highly of the MD program and his enthusiasm was infectious. Dr. Katri was also very informative and encouraged me to ask questions in the future as well. Interestingly, he stated that the NY Medical Licensing board considers three types of graduates for licensing, U.S., Foreign, and SGU grads (which I hadn't known and found rather reflective of SGU's rising reputation)."

He (the interviewer) had been rejected by 60 schools before getting accepted to SGU, did his residency at Emory, and is now a wonderful doctor. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer was in the 99th percentile of his surgery residency." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nuttall (the interviewer in Mass) gave both pro's and cons of going to a foreign medical school. he enjoyed his experience. seems like you get the best international experience as a physician at SGU ( you can go to london for one of your clinical years). also if you graduate at the top 5% of the class, you can transfer to an american school... but it's your responsibility to find out what schools have openings. you're not at a significant disadvantage if you attend SGU. you take the same step exams... and all of the residency programs are pretty much open to you. the elite ones like the ones at harvard will be harder, but that's for everyone, american taught or not. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I cannot name anything negative about this interview. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. It was laid back." More from this Member | Report Response

"that there were no personally invested questions. SGU sends the doc a set form of questions (posted all over here) to ask and he just writes down the answers and mails it back to them. I could have saved 200 miles of driving and a lot of time if I just filled them out myself." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish the interview had been longer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"the interviewer never really asked me any questions that he formulated on his own (all the questions were just the ones he was supposed to ask)...he didn't seem genuinely interested in who I am or in my answers to the questions. It made me wonder if he had even read my essays or any part of my application. I also didn't like the fact that the interview was at a noisy coffee shop." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer didn't smile much. At the end of the interview, he didn't really tell me if he was going to recommend me or not, I know that doesn't happen to everyone, but I really wish I could've gotten some indication if he liked my answers or not. Well, sometimes he would say 'good.' I guess that's all I have to go on!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I did all this prep, so now I really don't know how to go through a hard core interview. But, at least, I did still prepare, so I know what I would say for my next interview. Make sure to always include information about yourself and your experiences even if not asked about. So, during our discussions, I would throw in stuff about me and my medical experiences, or random experiences that said a little about my maturity, and interest in medicine without him exactly asking me directly. (as a just in case factor.)" More from this Member | Report Response

When he finally interviewed me, he was very rude, pointing out my nationality and gender and how I should really consider PA school so I could raise a family.

"How easy it was going to be. I over prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"If you're making a one-on-one appointment with an interviewer in the States, they are going to ask questions from a sheet of paper they are given by SGU, and they ask those questions and jot down some notes about your answers, and send it back to SGU.

Make sure you check out the location a day prior to the interview so you can gauge how long it will take, and if there are any crazy turns that are not readily noticeable you don't get lost the day of the interview. Leave enough time so that you can wait there for about 1/2 an hour (as a just in case factor). Expect that the interviewer may show up 1/2 hr to 1 hr late. Take a book. Look up stuff on the internet on SGU, the school, the research, know why you chose the school, and why they should choose you. Also, take questions ready for the interviewer, too.

"My interviewer was one of the lead surgeons at MCV (possibly the best medical school in Virginia). He told me he had to work very hard to get past the stigma he had attached to him as an FMG (foreign medical grad.) But he obviously did get past it. St. Geroge's is a place of last resort.

Altogehter it took about 3 months for the applicaiton to be processed. Its best to apply before August (if plan to start in Jan of next year) or January (if you plan to start in Aug of that year) because August or January is the time when the new class starts so I think the admission staff members are assisting the accepted students more than the applicants. As of 2010, I think the lastest to apply for August class is 6/15 and the latest to apply for January class is 11/15. The admission counselors are friendly to answer your questions anytime! Every week or so I asked what my status was and my counselor gave detailed answers (like "I received your file and it will be reviewed in 3 days" instead of "your file is under review") I was nervous for my interview because my interview invitation e-mail told me that I will be in a group interview. But later on I read over it that even if its a group interview the interviewer will be interviewing one applicant at a time while the other applicants will be working on the essay. The essay topics were: 1. What are three characteristics you possess that will make you a good physician? 2. Describe a notable life changing experience 3. Describe an individual who has inspired you I hope no one gets nervous like me. I kept a cheerful attitude while answering questions. I think for me being really honest helped alot (for example when I was asked if I was interested in MPH program, I said "no" because I would have to complete MPH course first before MD courses, and time is important to me so I can't take another year to complete MD/MPH degree. The interviewer laughed and said he agreed with me). Good luck everyone!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I was happy that I kept my answers short and concise. He probably liked that. Maybe they were about two minute long responses. He or she will ask questions about your responses and be sure to build off of that. He or she might explain a lot about themselves and what they went through and what they look forward to in their career. Be prepared to work off this. Be interested in them and what they do. I think my interviewer was impressed with me and asking him questions about this. Try to laugh and smile. I tend to do this often. Don't make it awkward or creepy. I think if you do it right you'll look more friendly and NORMAL. This is one thing I was told by an SGU grad, "Don't turn out to be a serial killer in the interview. Be normal, you'll get accepted." That's what I did and guess what happened.... Be comfortable because it's a conversation. You should be comfortable talking about yourself. Dont stress too much. As I said before, if you are comfortable with yourself and know you are going into medicine for the right reasons then you have nothing to worry about. Also the best advice graduates of medical schools said to me is "take what you learn on these sites with a grain of salt. a lot of these people go through different experiences than you." Remember that. " More from this Member | Report Response

"an hour long interview. i will be honest, it isn't a cakewalk. a person as senior as dr. j, u can't really have a "chat" with him. he wanted a concrete plan from you regarding your future. so one can't bluff him. just read up on the interview forums. KNOW YOUR STUFF and be confident. there are always 10 questions and the essay which is mandatory. other questions follow during the discussion of other questions. do not be philosophical. be honest. be yourself. gud luck !"

"I am Canadian and living in Toronto so my interview was conducted in Toronto by an SGU grad who is currently doing his residency in Buffalo. The other doctor who was also present in the interview location (a doctor's office) was doing her fellowship in Buffalo. ..I found out that I was accepted 10 days after my interview by e-mail. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It felt really short and that I did most of the talking. Wished he could've been more enthusiastic but he seemed to have been on a busy schedule - can't blame it on a character flaw (got a page the last 5 minutes of the interview, answered it, told the Dr. on the other end that he'd be there in 5). Must be another overworked resident. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had an excellent interview experience. It's a little difficult to tell if I did well because the interview seemed to run so smoothly. It was casual and the interviewer told me alot about SGU. She was very enthusiastic and convincing about the benefits of attending SGU. She was well prepared and knowledgable about my application. " More from this Member | Report Response

"All in all a good experience i think. Wrote an essay beforehand and then had a Q&A with the interviewer. The interviewer was a radiologist at the hospital and still had some work to do so he left while i was writing the essay and then came back. During the interview he actually had to check a few scans as well...so it was a little choppy but that wasn't necessarily bad. It helped ease the tension." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I felt the interview went well, despite a couple hiccups. The interview style was more of a conversation, with one question leading into another. No ethics questions! Some questions: -Since you have had academic difficulty in the beginning of college, how can you be sure that you will be able to get through it again in med school? -Why SGU -What was the most solidifying experience you had that confirmed your desire to become a physician? -How will you financially support yourself through med school -How do you de-stress? -How do you think you will adjust to life on the island? -What area of medicine do you plan on practicing -Tell me about your application process to medical schools -are you concerned about being an FMG? -how did you find out about SGU -tell me about yourself" More from this Member | Report Response

I am quite excited to hear a positive response in the near future." More from this Member | Report Response

"the interview was at a coffee shop...he started with the questions right away. The interview was not like a conversation...the whole time I was answering questions, he was writing down what I said. After he asked me his questions, I had a short list of questions prepared about SGU that I asked him. At the end of the interview, he gave me the essay question to write. The whole interview was over in 30 minutes (a lot shorter than what I was expecting). " More from this Member | Report Response

Then he sat with his computer, asking me questions right from my file, and typing his impressions of my answers. All in all, the interview was more of a conversational type. He talked about a few stories here and there - related to my answers. The interview went fairly quickly, but we went through a vast array of questions!

Write about the characteristics of a good doctor 2. Who has influenced you the most 3. A moment that affacted your life. I chose the one about the most influential person.

"Met the interviewer (former SGU student) at the VA hospital outside Boston. It was quite laid back.

"This interviewer represents St. Georges. Looks like St. Georges is becoming a very snoby arrogant school in the carribean. They act like they are a school in the states. TO offer someone a spot in an MD/MPH program having to complete the MPH prior to medical school is just a ploy to make more money and keep you on the island for an extra year. The MPH program is not accredited, does not have much value here in the states, and does not tell anyone anything about my abilities to be a successful medical student. Put it to you this way this a hole added to the already burning fire inside to do super well in medical school and prove that there selection process sucks. Interviewer insulted me, my culture, and my family with comments that he made. I don't have any beef with him but feel he was very unprofessional in the way he carried out the interview.

Expect to write an essay (take a pen) on 1- a person who most influences you, 2- Describe 3 characteristics that will help you pursue a career as a physician, 3-describe a defining moment in your adult life. You have to choose one of those 3 options, and have to write for about 10 minutes (about a 1 -2 pages. )Make sure you also know about some kind of ethics related topics: Stem cell research, abortion, euthenasia, organ transplant, etc. Know this ins and outs of these, pros and cons, it's not what you feel about the topics, but that you are aware of both sides, and can discuss the issue maturely and intelligently.

Describe a memorable occurance that influenced you? what 3 characteristics should a physician possess?). After the ten minute essay he just read off of a list of simple questions for about half an hour and then left it open for you to ask your own questions.
