    If you look at other KMCIC posts they have specific information on what is expected in an interview. However the basics should be:

    Why do you want to be a doctor?

    What will you if you aren't accepted to medical school?

    What makes you special?

    What are your 2 best points?

    What are your 2 weakest points?

    What do you think will be your greatest challenge in completing medical school or learning how to be a doctor?

    In your view, what is the most pressing problem facing medicine today?

    How will you pay for medical school?

    If you could do anything different in your education, what would you do?

    Where else are you applying?

    Have you been accepted anywhere?

    What is your first choice?

    Tell me about yourself.

    What do you do in your spare time?

    How did you get here?

    Why would you be a good doctor?

    What are your strengths?

    What do you feel are the most important qualities in being a good doctor?

    What are your hobbies?

    Are you a leader or a follower? Why?

    What exposure have you had to the medical profession?

    Discuss your clinical experiences.

    Discuss your volunteer work.

    What do you think you will like most about medicine?

    What do you think you will like least about medicine?

    Expect questions concerning what you think about ethics and healthcare (e.g., abortion, cloning, euthanasia).

    Be prepared to discuss managed healthcare and changes in the US healthcare system.

    How are you a match for our medical school?

    Would you perform abortions as a doctor? Under what conditions?

    What are three things you want to change about yourself?

    How would you describe the relationship between science and medicine?

    Which family member has influenced your life so far and why?

    This link shows you a bunch of basic questions they can ask you. I heard the interview is a breeze as long as you are confident in what you say and you provide several examples of why you want to become a physician.

    Good luck!

    Like I said these are just basic med school questions that are asked. I found these on a website. However, I couldnt post the link because I dont have 20 posts yet. Sorry I was just trying to help the guy out with basic questions.

    How would you compare KMCIC to KMC? What are your thoughts regarding the two programs. Also what would be the biggest difference between both in your opinion. Also when is the deadline for KMCIC for September 2010

    I have letters of rec. from a doctor I shadowed and a Hospice company I volunteered for. Will that be okay? Also how long does the process take once I submit all my paperwork? Also the tuition, is it paid to Manipal or to AUA and what increments is the tuition paid. Thanks.
