    In Person Interview in Poznan

    Advertisements



    Folks,

    I have intro to an admissions officer @ Poznan. I am due to meet him late next week.

    Any ideas what the form / content of such an interview would take?

    As it is an admissions officer I assume it wont be technical.

    Really appreciate any advice and other tips so that I can "wow" the interviewer. E.g. Any research going on @ Poznan recently, other developments. Esentially I want to make sure they know I have done my homework and some.

    Thanks much!!

    Google it. A lot of professors collaborate their research projects with Universities in different countries.
    I think that there is stem cell research with a prof in the immuno-department in Philadelphia.
    There is lots of inter-university cooperation.

    If you talk to the professors, they will give you a better idea of what is going on.

    I don't think that it will be that hard to get into the program. I believe that it is your finances that they will pay the most interest to. They are a business first. Relax a bit... There is another thread on this topic lower on in the forum. A lot of the kids that attend here have parents paying for their schooling. They are rich and do not realize it. However, then you have people on the opposite end of the spectrum, ones that sold their houses to attend. You have all types of students here.

    BUT do not be mistaken, not everyone gets in. Last year they didn't accept 30 people or so into the program. There are limited spots.

    Would you bring proof of availability to pay?

    Or is that just nuts?

    I suggest that you do. Also, I suggest you look at schools that are in the process of being accredited. It will save you on costs (if that is a factor for you), and get you to the same place as Poland. Ones that have submitted a request for board approval. Open up your options, thus you can be choosy and have collateral to bargain with. If a University knows you were accepted to others and that they are not your only choice it will increase your chances of acceptance naturally. If anything, if you come from a lower scale University, and have to do the extra work to get rotations or residency, rather than having it done for you, it will mold you into a person that makes opportunities rather than having it given to you. It will make you better suited to get ahead in life in the long run. You can talk about it in your interviews to gain an advantage over others. BUT the Universities reputation will also be advantages as to whether a hospital in the states will take you.

    You can sell yourself as a person that learns from the bottom up, especially if you were paying for your own schooling.

    Also factor in flight costs.

    This is why I think you should start with the smaller Universities, get acceptance and move up the ladder. You have more bargaining power.

    Where are you going to be interviewed? If it is on campus take a look around the city at the places you'll eat, sleep, exercise etc... Also, try and show your volunteer history etc...

    If you are a girl, dress pretty and catch the interviewers attention. Pull all the stops. The Polish like pretty girls. It will give you an edge over the others. Professional and pretty, not slutty.

    Know your technical information, brush up on your basics, it cam up in previous interviews.

    Polish history is a plus.

    As with any developing University, help further its development. Be the change you want to see in the University. BUT, since the school is already board approved, your contributions will not be as widely known or heard of.

    I sometimes wonder if you could bribe your way into attending most Universities (the world is corrupt) and money makes it go round... if you're really desperate, you can try it. BUT you'll have to be quiet about it...

    You don't have to be born a winner to become a useful person. Be sure to say that you are willing to put in the hard work to make it. Make sure you'll make the University look good. In developing schools, you become part of a team that should help improve the Universities rep. Also, take a look at what other schools have done.

    Oh, here are some more things that have happened.

    They tried an experimental Zamboni treatment for Multiple Sclerosis. It did not work out well for them though.

    I found this on a students website:
    1) ESPU was formed - A Student Government That Addressed All The Student Body's Concerns, Not Just A Particular Nationality For PUMS
    2) Electronic Test Checkers Were Obtained - The Teachers No Longer Had To Manually Mark The Tests For PUMS
    3) A New High Tech Library Was Opened For PUMS
    4) A Student Affair's Officer Was Appointed At PUMS
    5) A New Residence Building Was Being Built
    6) The PUMS Gym Was Renovated
    7) Matylda Tomaszczyk Obtained A 100 zolty Discount Per Person Group Deal With The Platinum Gym
    8) Creation Of The Resident's Assistant's Position

    Thanks Jason and Sam - really appreciate the advice.

    I am a guy so I assume a smart suit and tie would be appropriate?

    I am a bit concerned about showing proof of funds but will nonetheless.

    What “schools that are in the process of being accredited”?

    I have acceptances from other schools (again I can show proof but wont) and will mention it but genuinely I would prefer Poznan for reasons I can state.

    I will be interviewed / meeting on Campus and will take a good look around before and after.

    It is an awful long time since I studied sciences so am concerned that I will do poorly if they ask many questions. I will mention I am doing a course this summer to refresh however.

    Also I have until recently employed 3 polish guys from Warsaw and Gdansk. They were great guys.



    I saw the ref to the MS research on Google Scholar earlier. A crude search gave MUW & JAG 5K citations, MUG & MUL 4.5K each, while PUMS had only 1.5K citaitons. I guess it is correlated to age also.

    PUMS is an old University is it not? You have to call the schools u want to attend and ask. I am aware that Windsor applied, however, the is controversy around whether it will acquire it. I am uncertain of the requirements. The big 4 already have it, as do some foreign Unis. The Philippines has it BUT they are still relatively cheap with regards to other schools (without considering air fare).
