What are your general comments?

"Applied in June. Received interview invitation in mid July. Established contact with interviewer in August. Received decision in September. 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!" Report Response
