2

What was the style of the interview?

One-on-one

What type of interview was it?

Open file

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

"The first one asked about my volunteer experience abroad and the conversation just carried on naturally from there...just basically expanding on what was written in the application" Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"The second interviewer took the same approach as the first to start...but added at the end "Is there anything else I should know about you?" Usually those are golden opportunities to take control of the interview but I only ended up mentioning one major thing, my research. Later I regretted not saying much more but I got accepted so I'm guessing it wasn't necessarily a bad thing to keep it short and sweet." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"Nothing interesting per se since they were based on my application/essay" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Nothing difficult either." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Reviewed SDN feedback, mock interview, read up on ethics and my application" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The admin staff was great, especially Alice." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing really...one interviewer was running late so I waited around a bit but I understand." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That one of the interviewer's was on the ethics board - he didn't actually ask me anything directly pertaining to ethical issues, but it happened to come up during the conversation. Thankfully he didn't grill me and we had a decent discussion nonetheless." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I got there way ahead of time but there were already other applicants there for interviews so I just joined the video presentations and such till my interview time. The admin was very accommodating throughout the whole process. The interviewers were friendly and approachable. Ben Gurion interviews are known for being laid back - they're looking for students with motivation and genuine desire to do international health so they won't ask you obscure questions to see how well you handle bs situations."
