First, every single person on our Cracking Med School Admissions interview team has interviewed for top medical schools and received acceptances. We’ve had to sharpen our own medical school interview skills! We love interviewing and discovering ways to stand out — we’ve played the piano and beat-boxed during our own interviews!
But, medical school interview coaching is different. We care about making YOU a phenomenal interviewee!
Each year, we coach dozens of medical school applicants like you with the goal of making you stand out in your medical school interviews.
We are also passionate about medical school admissions and mentorship. For example, Dr. Rizal was an interviewer for Stanford Medical School’s Multiple Mini Interviews and Princeton undergraduate interviews. Dr. Mediratta has been an interviewer for Rhodes / Marshall Scholarships. We are active with our undergraduate career centers and speak to pre-med organizations around the United States about “How to Stand Out during Medical School interviews.”
Read our testimonials from medical school applicants from previous cycles down below. As one applicant put it,
“Practicing interviews with Cracking Med School Admissions helped me prepare for the real thing. The prep brought up interview questions that showed up in my actual interviews.“
“Perfect simulated experience that made interview day seem so much less daunting and more enjoyable, preparing me for both the foundational questions and all the curveballs interviewers threw at me.”
Traditional one-on-one mock medical school interview:
Before your traditional mock med school interview with Cracking Med School Admissions, your medical school interview coach will read your AMCAS application + secondary application in detail.
The first level of specificity is asking you questions related to your background. We will of course ask you the common medical school interview questions throughout your mock interview. But, we will also ask specific questions related to your extra-curricular activities.
The next level of tailoring your mock interview towards you is through tailoring the questions based on what medical school you will be interviewing at. We have received detailed post-interview feedback from hundreds of applicants, so we have a good grasp of the types of questions applicants may receive during their real interview day. For example, some medical schools value urban health while others value rural health. Some medical schools want to understand how you will become a healthcare leader. Still other medical schools want to understand your personal beliefs and values.
Finally, all the feedback you will receive from your medical school interview coach is specific to you. We never give general feedback. Everything is specific to your answers and how you were able to navigate through the interview. If you need help on crafting answers to common medical school questions, we will spend time during our feedback session to help you craft better responses. If we notice a pattern in your speaking or if something is lacking in your answers, we will point that out and give examples on how you can improve!
MMI Mock Medical School Interview:
Your medical school interview coach will emulate your mock MMI as closely as possible to your actual interview. If you have 2 minutes to think + 6 minutes to respond, that is what we will do during our mock MMI interview with you!
Please let us know what medical school you will interviewing at, the timing of the MMI stations, and any other information the medical school admissions committee gives you.
Most medical schools have ethical, traditional, and situational MMI stations. We will definitely have an array of MMI stations that cover those type of scenarios. Some schools, however, have team-based, creative, acting, or innovation-related MMI questions. We also know that medical schools ask questions related to its local current events. We will make sure to tailor our MMI questions and stations towards the specific medical school you will be interviewing at.
We have helped medical school applicants prepare generally for medical school interviews. However, we find that it is best to prepare for a specific upcoming medical school interview. This way, if you are interviewing at X medical school, we will ask questions like “Why do you want to come to X medical school?”
We will help you tailor your message and interview answers for a specific school. We know the nuances of various medical schools and what they like to emphasize, and we’ll make sure you hit those points during your interview!
