At the school
"What originally began your interest in medicine? How did 'x' (from CV) influence your decision? "
"Can you explain why you chose to do a Masters in Epidemiology? Most people do that after an MD degree."
"What would be some of the things you would consider in treating a patient who is in chronic/uncurable pain?"
"What would you say to me if I told you I donlt think you have a strong enough interest in the 'hard sciences' to get through medical school?"
"Biggest achievement/biggest failure (such typical questions, but pretty hard!)"
"Read my autobiographical statement, read the newspapers; introspection."
"The relaxed atmosphere and the desire to keep the interviews unstressful; the other students were supportive of the applicants; the desire of the McGill staff to tell us some of the good things about McGill, including the focus on clinical skills and the international make up of the class."
"McGill has too many students for its limited class space; small group sizes are large (15+); there are lots of younger students because of the MedP program."
"Overall, very positive experience. The interviewers just want to get to know you, get a sense of who you are, where you come from and why you are interested in medicine. It was much more conversational than at other schools because the interviewers weren't taking notes, and most questions were based on my previous responses. McGill would be a wonderful place to be."
