    I am going to Lodz in September.

    The interview was a cakewalk, really. Drs. M and Kadiyala interview you by phone the first time. They ask some pretty basic questions (why do you want to be a physician?, etc.). They don't rush you and are nice. The whole thing will take around 10 minutes if you're pretty communicative. Who knows how fast it will go if you're less so.

    The second interview is with the Dean of the English program and Dr. K. The Dean will ask the same types of questions and it'll be over. No big deal.

    Both interviews are merely a gate-keeping exercise so that they can say that they did things in a way reasonably similar to U.S. med schools.

    I don't want you to worry about this, but: they'll probably send you a letter saying that you've been waitlisted, and that they'll inform you if a position opens up. I don't know why they do this; but they probably will.
    A week or ten days later, however, they'll send you, first, an email saying that you've been admitted. A letter will come in the mail around a week after that saying the same thing (along with "send $750 within 2 weeks" to insure your place).

    In short, it is your ability to pay that they're worried about. Everyone I've known of has gotten in. No big deal, really.

    Why I picked Lodz is complex. The reason I didn't apply to the Carribean schools is because I don't like seawater, islands, sand, sun, etc. My orienting sensitivity makes me averse to those things.

    Don't worry though...your grades will not be a problem. Do you at least have a "C" in all the main courses? If so, you'll get in. If you can assure them that you'll finish O chem 2 in the summer, you'll be able to get admitted to the 4 year program. If you don't have C's in all the premed course, then you can get admitted to the 6 year program.

    I interviewed in February. I had the first one week; the second was two weeks later. It took then one week to send me the "waitlist" email. It took one week for them to send the next email. Then it was one week until I got the letter saying that I was accepted (and send $750 within two weeks).

    Trust me: you'll have no problem with AIM or MUL on the getting in side.

    i wouldn't worry to much about the classes just as Micheal said as long as you have all the requirements done with by the time you are to start with atleast a "C" you will be fine. i was in the same boat and will be taking my organic 2 this summer also. had my interview and got my acceptance in late Jan early Feb, same procedure as Michael said. good luck to you, but i am sure you will be fine and get in

    i mainly choose cause of the clinical options they give you and overall i have had a pleasant application with Lodz in comparison to HMI. during my research process i did not find to much on lodz and what i did find the good majorly out weighed the bad (the bad never said anything on the type of education though, mainly on AIM...but, they have been great to me! they have taken their time to answer ALL my questions and paper work). I just had a good feeling about them . i am sure my decision will not wrong me.

    Angry costs

    hey

    is anyone else on here kind of shocked that the AIM/MUL people want around $16,000 for a year's tuition whereas in the actual website for the Medical University of Lodz, tuition is EUR 7000. now, i'm no expert on conversion rates, but something doesn't add up.

    another thing to consider......a Euro is a lot different then USD make sure your conversion is correct.
