Updated: May 24
One of the first steps in preparing for the med school interview is practicing responses to the common questions.
Before you start reading through these questions, please note one important point! Yes, there are over 350 questions on this list. But most of them are variations of the same major questions, of which there are about 30. (Makes it sound a little a less intimidating, doesn't it?)
