    Interview!

    Advertisements



    Hi all, I applied to Jag last week and I've been emailed with an interview invite for next week!!!

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to prepare for it, so I thought I'd post here for some insight. I've read through older posts, and I'm also wondering if they still do a face-to-face interview followed by a phone interview. Or is it just one interview these days?

    Also, I'm not sure if I read this about Jag or Poznan, but someone wrote that after the interview, the panel deliberated for about 5 minutes before giving out an acceptance on the spot. Does that happen?

    PS - I've applied for the 4-year program, and I am really nervous and anxious and hope I get in!

    First of all congrats on getting an interview.
    I think its just an interview nowadays, and no longer is the telephone one rqd. although I may be wrong.
    As far as panel deliberating I think thats Poznan, Jagiellonian takes their time and will meet up here in Krakow and decide that way.
    For the interview, just be yourself, be able to answer the typical med school interview questions, why medicine, why Krakow etc. Best of luck!

    Yes it was me that posted that, and Poznan does give acceptances on the spot. Jag takes their time. From what I've heard it's just a face to face now that the interview is with Dean Laidler.

    If you search through my older posts you will find out everything you need to know about the interview..what questions were asked etc etc

    congrats and good luck.

    i also have an interview set for next week. i wasn't able to find any posts on possible interview questions specific to Jag though.
    I assume they will ask stuff like why jag/poland, tell me a little bit about yourself, why medicine... what else though? do they ask ethically based questions- giving a scenario and then awaiting an ethical response?
    What should one do to prepare other than know their sketch well and be able to talk about stuff of their CV?
    any advice is welcome and much much appreciated

    no ethical or science questions. they asked about extra curriculars, research and CV stuff. it was the standard med school interview plus some questions you can't really prepare for so as to make sure you're a real human being and not someone just reading off a mental script.
