Today I had my first medical school interview with Ross University! I had gotten an email earlier in the week about being selected for an interview, but that I would hear back about the exact date after confirming some available dates. I replied that my schedule was open and flexible and they set me up for this morning.
It was a little over an hours drive to get to Ross’ regional center, and I went in for the interview shortly after arriving. The interview was one-on-one, open file, and lasted a little over an hour. We went through several parts of my application. I discussed some of the lower grades that I had received, explained my favorite course, and talked about my volunteering experiences and my training as a CNA among other things. Oh yeah, and of course, “Why do you want to be a doctor?”. Can’t forget that question! 😛
It was, overall, quite nerve-wracking! I eventually relaxed after the first response or two and enjoyed our discussion. I think it went pretty well! Now I just have to wait for 2-6 weeks to hear back about a final admissions decision. This waiting is going to kill me! I also heard back from AUC yesterday that my application is complete and that they will get back to me in, you guessed it, 2-6 weeks with a final decision. Yay…more waiting!
