    AUA interview questions

    Advertisements



    So I have my interview this week with AUA and was wondering if somebody who has actually had an interview with AUA please shed some light on any questions you remember.

    Before anyone tears me apart and tells me to do a search, please know that I have done extensive searches on this site for interview questions. In the AUA forum (which has no Interview sticky for some reason), I only found the following questions that have been asked before:

    If the rest of the admissions committee asks why I chose you, what should I say?
    how would my friends describe me and how would i describe myself
    my college experience and any post-bac pre-med experience
    my study habits, if i like to study in groups
    if i know someone in med school, he wanted to know if i am ready to commit to long hours of study and hard work that required in med school
    about my family
    Why AUA
    scenario questions has to with ethics
    characteristics of good doctor

    Since searching the AUA threads was not as much a success as I hoped, I instead have been preparing using the MUA questions (MUA forum has an excellent interview sticky!!)

    So if you have interviewed with AUA, can you please shed some light on any interesting questions or anything I should focus on, be prepared for, etc...

    Thanks so much!

    honestly you've pretty much got it down. they'll probably also ask how you'll feel about being so far away from family/friends, as well as any questionable grades in the required sciences.

    My interviewer asked me about tons of ethical scenarios, so i guess it just depends on who you get. hope i helped!

    i actually didnt get any ethical senario q's, but did get asked what makes me so different than other students applying, and how i would study so as to not get left back or fail.

    You need to some extensive search. I posted a list (around 20 questions) when i was interviewed. Search using my name (redsoxsuck) and it should pop up. Hope this helps.

    I recently just gave an interview for the American University of Antigua (AUA) and these are the questions i was asked:

    1. Tell me about yourself.- This is a very tricky question looking at the fact that you do not know what they are asking for specifically.
    2. Why AUA?- Tell them a very strong reason as to why you chose this school other than any other school available. Make sure to look at the school statistics: such as the graduation rate and the USMLE rate.
    3. Did you apply in any other universities yet?-
    4. Why should we choose you?- In this question, talk about what you can bring to the school and what is so special about you than any other student.
    5. What is a physician?- They want to know what your definition of being a physician means.
    6. What is medicine?

    These were the interview questions that i was asked. My interview was done on Skype since i was not any where near their location. So it was a video chat session no more than 25 minutes at the most. It was a very basic interview and i was not nervous at all because i did my research and had a clue of what i was going to be asked. This thread helped me a lot. Also check out other websites and videos to help you prepare for how to respond to the questions they asked. The atmosphere during the interview was very relaxing. The interviewer did not make me feel nervous at all. The interview is not just about the interviewer asking the questions but also what questions you can ask. I personally asked a lot of questions about the school and facilities. Also when the interviewer asked me why AUA, i responded by bringing up their graduate rate and this impressed the interviewer a lot. This research made me seem like someone who was really prepared for this. 3 weeks later i received a call saying that i got in because my interview was very strong.
