One-on-one

What type of interview was it?

Open file

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"My advice on this is to know yourself and motivations for why you want to become a physician. Since they actually read and remeber your application most of the questions you get (especially from the admission interview) are tailored specifically to you. " Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"What were my favorite and least favorite science/non-science classes as an undergraduate. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"If you examine the reviews posted here you should be in pretty good shape. With exception to the question listed above all of the questions asked were posted throughout these reviews. " Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Went through each aspect of their website: student profiles, research links, etc. This was very rewarding as it gave me a great detail with which to address questions. I also read all the reviews for Kirkesville posted on this website. GO OVER YOUR ACCOMAS AND SECONDARY APPLICATION! for the admissions interview they will hit on all the experiences you listed, so have them fresh in your mind. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"You recieve information cards telling about those who will interview you. Throughout the day everything was handled in a very professional manner and they make it a point to know you as an individual. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing, the format for the day is well laid out and everyone from the admissions staff to the students really work hard to make it as easy as possible. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Gear up on medical terminology with regards to clinical rotations - i.e. preceptor." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Many of the other reviews give good info about the conversational nature of the interview process. There is a good reason for this - they read your application in advance, allowing for a real conversation (unlike other schools which read it for the first time in front of you). Make sure you bring up the points you wish to hit on if it's just a loose conversation. When I was with the D.O. (you have 3 interviews 1 faculty, 1 clinician, and admissions representative) he read questions from a list for standardization purposes. Mine seemed a little rushed for time but he made sure to answer all of my questions completely." Report Response
