    December Interview

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone!!

    I just emailed PUMS and found out that I have an interview on December 5,6, or 7th. Anyone know what the interview is like? Does anyone know what they ask and stuff? Anyone else attending an interview around this time? I applied to the 5 yr DDS program.


    Thanks a lot!

    Congrats Child!

    I also applied to KMU/PUMS, for the 6yr MD-Prgramme - and today I received an email saying that I was invited to an interview in early December. Am super excited!

    After reading threads on this page, what I've been able to learn over the interview and what they'll ask is:

    Why do you want to study Medicine?

    General background information. Extracurricular activities, medical experience, hobbies, etc.

    Academic background. Grades, science classes taken (chemistry, biology, physics), overall grades, etc.

    Why KMU/PUMS? Why Poland? (Little Polish History)

    A science related question they ask you to answer.

    And they give you an opportunity to ask questions to the staff.

    --Hope this helped!

    Yeah I figured the questions would be like that!! I am actually applying for the 5 yr DDS program. Not the 6 yr MD program. But I'm sure its pretty similar!!

    The school has made it quite clear that they are going to be increasingly more selective about who is accepted into the MD programs as compared to years past. This is due to an increase in the number of applicants (due to the recession) as well as the need for the school to have a 75% passing success rate for the USMLE. So be ready to really show that you are committed to medicine and that it's something you really want - also dress professionally. Best of luck!

    Haha, well knowing that someone else is going through the same process is cool. I could be wrong, but I'm guess and say that each programme will vary in number of interviews, but wouldn't be surprised if its averaging 30+ or so.

    I'm from NYC.

    Awesome - Thanks for the heads-up Paul! I'll put all my effort to show my determination.

    You're in the 4-MD Programme, right?
    How're things going at PUMS?

    Anyone have any idea as to what they might ask in the Interview?? I know they will ask you questions such as why do you want to come to poland or be a doctor or dentist. But I am wondering if they will be asking you any science questions? Or critical thinking questions?

    Thanks!
