"''What was a time that you were faced with social diversity and how did you deal with it?'' My answer was that I had actually read this question on an interview site and had been troubled with how I would answer it b/c I grew up in a life where diversity was minimized and that I would deal with a socially diverse person just like I would deal with any other person. I wouldn't notice their difference; I would see them as a person and deal with them like anyone else. I also got asked to talk about something that I am really good at in life. It wasn't in any certain context and it was very difficult to answer. I said that as corny as it sounds, I am a good friend and that I have proof in the fact that at the age of 27 I still have 9 girlfriends from highschool that I talk to every 2 weeks. I talked about how much energy it took to make sure that I kept in touch with them but how important that was to me. It seemed like a silly small thing, but it seemed to impress them immensely. Don't try to make up some grandiose answer. Just be real and you will come out on top. " More from this Member | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
