    Interview question?

    Advertisements



    I am pleased to have an interview at Ross, but I am very nervous about it. If anyone has any advice for me or questions they are likely to ask, I would be very greatful. Thanks a lot.

    Hi,
    I am in the same boat as you. I have an interview next Friday. When is yours?
    From what I have read...the most important thing is to relax. Go over your application and your essay and be ready to ansewer questions from it. Get a good nights rest the day before the interview. And be yourself.

    Don't worry, i had my interview last month and it was great i loved it. They didnt ask me any questions, they just went over my personal statement and thats it. Just be yourself and you'll be fine. If you have anymore questions PM me..Good luck

    interview

    i had a non-challenging interview. it was pretty benign actually. they asked me exactly what was on my personal statement and that was it. it was less than 20 minutes in a makeshift office in newyork.

    dont worry too much

    I had my interview last week in Miami w/ Dr Clutter. He is, without a doubt, one of the nicest men I've ever met in a professional setting.

    The group of us who were interviewing went in and watched a Ross PR film while we all cycled through the interview. Interviews seemed to last in the thirty minute time frame. Very straightforward questions. (Do a search on ValueMD for 'interview' under the Ross site....there is one link with the questions you'll likely get) As others have wrote, more of a friendly conversation. There were no 'stump the dummy' type questions at all. I've done quite a bit of interviewing in the private sector and this was, by far, the easiest interview I've had...not because it wasn't thorough, just because of Dr Clutter's demeanor.

    After the interview, we visited with a recent grad that was waiting to start residency. He fielded questions on just about everything and did not sugarcoat anything that I could tell.

    Following the Q&A with the grad, we toured Larkin Community Hospital. It is a small hospital with some students doing FP rotations...if I remember correctly. We then had lunch at the hospital cafeteria with Dr Clutter and the grad. More Q&A with both. On a side note, I had forgotten just how good hospital cuisine actually is.

    Everyone was professionally dressed. Business suits for the guys.....professional attire for the lady that was there with us.

    The only downside was the hotel the school recommends was not that nice. It wasn't roach infested or anything, just not that nice. I had to wait 2 hours at the airport for their shuttle to arrive. I kept calling and they kept telling me it was on the way.....then not on the way....then on the way. May want to look at a taxi or rental. The hotel is, however, only a couple blocks from the school. As advertised, you can walk to the admin bldg in less than 5 minutes. Arrive early for the interview. Don't be the sluggo that walks in 5 minutes late.

    Overall, a VERY painless process.

    interview

    mine was pretty easy, i had my interview in NJ, no tough questions, they try to personalize the interview based on your resume, classes you took, college activities, essay...etc. just relax and be yourself, they already know you want to be a doc, dont be afraid to talk about yourself and what you've done, best advise: be personable, friendly and interested in being a doc
