    A Word From Dr. Rachel Rizal

    Hi Medical School Applicants!

    My name is Dr. Rachel Rizal, and I’ll be your instructor for the “Mastering The Multiple Mini Interview” course.

    Are you worried about doing well on your medical school Multiple Mini Interview (MMI)? Don’t worry, I was too.

    I was part of Stanford Medical School’s first batch of medical student applicants who went through the MMI interview process. “How do I stand out? What’s the best way to answer MMI questions? What if there are actors in the room and I have to role play? What if I blank out when I meet an interviewer? Can I prepare for my MMI?”

    These questions – and more – were swimming in my head… similar questions that you may be having right now as your MMI interview is fast approaching.

    Luckily, I got accepted to Stanford School of Medicine!

    Fast forward a few years, and I became an interviewer for Stanford Multiple Mini Interviews. I learned how to differentiate between GOOD versus GREAT versus STELLAR medical student applicants. I have been in both your shoes and the interviewer’s shoes.

    Which is why, I created this Multiple Mini Interview course! I want to help YOU succeed and shine during YOUR interview day. I will help you get STELLAR MMI scores!

    For the past few years, I coached and prepared pre-meds to ace their MMIs. And they have been very successful!

    These are some of the medical schools with Multiple Mini Interviews that our premed students have been accepted to:

    • Stanford
    • NYU
    • University of California, San Diego (UCSD)
    • University of California, Davis (UCD)
    • University of Massachusetts (UMass)
    • Duke
    • New York Medical College
    • Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

    Don’t leave a medical school acceptance to chance.

    Enroll for our Cracking Med School Admissions online course and do a full-length mock interview and feedback session with Dr. Rachel Rizal or Dr. Rishi Mediratta.

    Please email Dr. Rachel Rizal any additional questions you have at info@crackingmedadmissions.com. I am here to guide you through the medical school admissions process, and I am always happy to help! 🙂

    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.

    Our team prepped students for interviews for 50+ different medical schools over the years.

    Drs. Mediratta and Rizal also love interviewing and discovering ways to stand out — we’ve played the piano and beat-boxed during our own interviews! 🙂

    Yes, we prepare you on how to do well for any type of medical interview. The interview stations and interview questions we ask you during your mock interview is tailored towards the specific school you will be interviewing at. 

    Our students work with us to prepare for BOTH Multiple Mini Interviews and traditional interviews. For each type of interview, students typically do 1-4 mock interviews. The more practice you have with us, the more we can refine your skills! 

    We have seen this hybrid format more frequently over the years. The hybrid traditional interview / MMI circuit can look like this:

    1. MMI circuit with 5-10 stations consisting of MMI stations without any traditional interview questions PLUS 1-2 one-on-one traditional interviews separate from the MMI circuit.
    2. MMI circuit with 1-2 traditional stations in lieu of an MMI station.

    The Mastering the Multiple Mini Interview course will prepare you for ALL types of interview styles! The purpose of the course is to not tell you how to answer specific questions. Rather, the purpose is to teach you how to approach all types of scenarios and questions given to you during interview day. Oftentimes, traditional one-on-one interviews and panel interviews have a few ethical scenarios, traditional common questions, and behavioral questions. Again, you’ll learn how to give responses that stand out through this course!

    There are no common questions for Multiple Mini Interviews. The course covers the breath of types of questions (i.e. ethics, traditional, situational, current events, team-based) that could be asked on your interview day. We do tailor the MMI interview questions during our mock interview to reflect that types of questions asked at the specific medical school MMI circuit you will be interviewing at.
