Hey Everyone!

 

I have never started a forum before. Here is my first one. CASPA verified 5-28. Received Suplemental App from UC and Submitted it 5-30. Hoping for good news soon. From last year forums they don’t seem to waste time starting interviews.

Quick question. I got the email for the supplemental application. Is it just the two questions? I just wanted to make sure as it says to upload the application including the questions as one word document

 Hey Guys congratulations on your up coming interview!! I am a current student, and my advice for the interview (as lame as this sounds) is just be yourself. They already know that they like you on paper, and now they want to get to meet you as a person. As far as actually preparing for the interview, I would suggest preparing how you would for any other interview (look up most common question and practice answering them). Even if the questions you have practiced aren't asked at your interview it will get you in the right mind set.  Something I did is I looked at each school I interviewed at's mission statements, and from there I picked 2 or 3 examples of how I was a good fit for the school based on their mission statement. This helped me get more in the right mind set at each school.

Hi there! Thank you so much for all of the advice. Is it true that after the interview only a couple of people are offered acceptance and the rest aren’t notified until September?
