    Telephone Interview

    Advertisements



    Hi,

    I just want to know if there's anybody who had a telephone interview before. Can you please share experience? My interviewer has to go out of state and has to conduct telephone interview. I don't know what to expect from the interview. How is the format of phone interview?

    Thank you

    I applied late and my interviewer was kind enough to give me the opportunity to interview over the phone.
    The format is the same as if you were doing it in person.
    Some questions I was asked:

    "If you won the lottery, would you still go to medical school?"
    "You did very well in your upper level science courses, what happened in ______ course (that I got a 'C' in)?"

    Those were the two that caught me off guard the most. The second one was kind of expected - or at least something that addressed my weaknesses - but the first one was a bit of a surprise. This is Ross' opportunity to get to know you. Since they can't see you in person, they may ask you more questions than if you were face to face, but the interviewers are professional and make you feel comfortable. You'll do fine.

    That can't be good. I think going to phone interviews indicates a drop in standards.

    An old girlfriend of mine had a telephone interview while we were eating lunch in our dorm cafeteria. They asked her these ques. for sure:
    1. Why do you want to be a doctor?
    2. An ethics ques.
    3. Why did you apply to Ross?

    She now is doing rotations in Chicago.

    they have been doing these for some time, this is nothing new. from what i hear they do try to make sure you interview in person, but time/locations don't always allow that. they do make it much easier for most of us to interview in person having multiple sites across the us and canada.

    Phone interviews are the norm now. A friend of mine was interviewed by phone when she applied to Loma Linda pharm school here in California and another to Saba...one of the Carribean med schools near St. Maarten.
