The medical school interview is the last obstacle between you and that coveted medical school admission. If you are like most pre-meds, you are anxious about the medical school interview because you have never been through a serious interview process and now your entire future depends on an interview.
After this course, you can say goodbye to the butterflies in your stomach and say hello to the new you who is full of skills and confidence and is an absolute interview superstar!
I’ll never forget the day I got the call.
I was driving down the 405 freeway with my Dad in the passenger seat. We were talking about the Lakers (the greatest sports team on the planet, if you didn’t already know), and my phone rang. On the screen was a number I didn’t recognize and when I said ‘hello’, the voice responded “Hi, this is Dr. Gabriel Garcia, Dean of Admissions at Stanford School of Medicine. Is this Mr. Andre Pin-a-sett?”
I almost swerved off the road with excitement. I collected myself and replied in the deepest voice I could muster, “yes this is Andre Pin-a-sett (Rule #1 of interviewing: don’t correct the Dean).”
“Well, Mr. Pin-a-set, I am calling to let you know that you were one of the best candidates we interviewed this cycle and we would be thrilled if you would attend our medical school.” It was the greatest moment of my life.
I thanked him and quickly got off the phone. Knowing that Stanford was my #1 choice, my Dad put his arms around me and said “Son, you did what you said you were going to do, I couldn’t be prouder.” The new greatest moment of my life.
