I have written my personal statement and mentioned that I am bilingual in English and Spanish. My native language is English, but I have taken 10 years of Spanish courses and would consider myself pretty fluent (I use my Spanish daily with patients in an inpatient setting). Has anyone who has had past interviews, and is bilingual, been given an interview question in their second language? This could just be pre-application anxiety, but I see myself potentially walking into an interview already a nervous disaster and then just totally blowing it if they asked me a question in Spanish that I didn't quite understand. Thanks in advance!

I have several friends who applied to medical schools with "bilingual in spanish" on their applications and they were asked several questions in the interview in spanish. I would hesitate to put "completely bilingual" (maybe say conversational?) if you don't think you could handle a question of that sort.

      I've been genuinely curious about this, what's the latest time an applicant has received an interview invite? I feel a little crazy refreshing my emails so late at night but I don't want to miss any. Also, has anyone received an invite over the weekend before? My anxiety has me checking all day every day.

      Has anyone had any interview experience with schools asking applicants questions from subjects they took most recently to that date? Almost like a quiz or comprehension of the recent course? Wondering because I feel like I wouldn't be able to recall any academic material under that much pressure. TIA!

      I know this is annoying and probably not healthy for me to be doing, but has anyone received an interview? In the email that notified me that they received my application, it said interview invitations are sent July-October...since it's near the end of July, I was wondering if anyone has received an interview invitation? 
      Sincerely,
      An anxious applicant
