Interview help! (8/19/2011)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I just confirmed my interview invite for next friday, August 19,2011. Does any current students have any suggestions as what to expect on the writing sample and how the faculty/student interviews are? Any help is much appreciated! This is my first interview!

The best advice I got before my interview was from one of my professors; he said to be honest, be yourself, and don't just say the things that you know they want to hear and will hear from every applicant. It sounds simplistic, but that is usually all it takes. If you are confident in your decision to pursue this career, and know about the current state of healthcare in this country, then you will be fine. Congratulations and good luck at your interview!

For those who are interviewing: curious to know what your numbers are? Patient contact hours, your background, experience, GPA's, etc? Thanks.

Hey has anyone heard anything more from Drexel? any more interviews? There has not been a lot of activity here so I wanted to check in with everyone.

I haven't heard anything either way. I submitted my secondary in the beginning of August, but had to get score reports sent from high school exams. I received credit for a few of the pre-requisite courses on my university transcript, but Drexel required I send my actual scores. These were sent in mid-August from the testing organization. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get in touch with anyone the last several times I've tried calling to see if my application is finally complete.

hi everyone,

 

Good luck to those who are interviewing soon! I also interviewed on 8/19 and was accepted 2 weeks ago. The acceptance package will be coming soon, in about a week.

 

I felt that the interview day was organized, and everyone was really nice. The program def. supports its students. A lot opportunities to practice your skills on patients outside of class since the hospital is literaly attached to the classrom. Just remember to relax and be yourself on that day! :)

Kamg436: I submitted everything the same time you did and am in the same boat. Admissions folks are super busy, so I wouldn't worry about it for a while. No news is good news until you get bad news.
