Hello everyone! For those of you that already had the interview, can you please explain what to expect? How was the interview process?

Hey! So it was a very relaxed environment and they really want to get to know you as a person. Everyone was very nice and it was more of a conversation than an interview. For the process, it depends on your schedule, we had a meet and greet with the faculty at 8:00am, then you either went on to one-on-one interviews or to the panal, but everyone is different. They also had a student chat so you could hop in and ask questions anytime! Hope this helps!! Feel free to reach out with more questions, I am always happy to help!

It was very relaxed! One thing that especially stood out to me during the interview was brought up by both faculty and the student ambassadors the day before when they said the interview was more about South demonstrating "This is why you should pick South" and much less about "Why should South pick you?" I really felt welcome and had fun during the interview!

Thank you!! It seems like most of us that interviewed today all received our invites the day after the previous round of interviews... so I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Hi! I just received an interview invite to South this morning. How long did the interview take on the second day? Was it an all day thing or just for a few hours? I want to know so I can coordinate with my work. Congrats on your acceptance by the way!

They send out individual interview schedules, and you might end up with gaps between your interviews, it all depends. I was fortunate and had my first individual and my panel interview back to back in the morning, then just a 30 minute break before my last individual interview. I was interviewing from about 6:30 am to 8:30 am MST.

Hmm okay I think I'm going to reach out to the program and see if they have any more info on what my schedule will look like. Thanks for the help!

Just like wildalaska said, it really depends on your schedule and we recieved our schedules maybe 4-5 days before the interview? (someone correct me if I am wrong) so I would take the day off from work just to be safe if possible. Mine was a little longer from 8am EST to 12:30pm EST because I had a 2 hour break between the intro and my first interview. Best of luck on your interview!!!

They do!! I think they mentioned something about going to Mercer school of medicine to share the cadaver lab there? But they do for sure have one for A & P courses. That was one of the questions I asked during the info. session!

Hey, I am a current student in the program! We do use the Mercer School of Medicine cadaver lab for A&P. Since we do share with the med school, we do not have to spend time dissecting at all. The med students dissect the cadavers and they are then available for us to use. I personally prefer it to be this way because we don't have to spend all of that extra time trying to expose the structures we want to study. 🙂

Sure! It was you, 3 other candidates, the medical director and I can't remember the last person (admissions director maybe?). They just go down the line and you guys answer questions so everyone will get a chance to respond; kind of like group interview style. Since it is a lot of you, there will only be time for like 2-3 questions so don't stress this part too much. Hope this helps!

Hello! And thank you for starting a thread! I just wanted to ask if you had any insight as to how much emphasis South places on the GRE. I scored a 297 and would consider it the weakest part of my app, so I'm worried that if I apply they won't really look at it. Thanks!

Just be able to rationalize why you did scored lower than you would like. Make sure your narrative is written perfectly.

South - Savannah interviewed and accepted me and I still haven't received further information on any of that. South - Tampa invited me to interview and sent all of that information to complete ASAP after sending the interview invite, but I declined my interview so I never started any of it. Sorry I'm not much help!
