Is your application incomplete until you have sent in your supplemental questions?
I am turning in my application by this weekend but I am going on vacation until July 10. I'm not sure if I will have time to work on my supplemental questions. Should I try to finish it before I leave for...
We have a medical school admissions fair at my school next week that I need to start preparing for. What types of questions are best to ask these schools? What do you wish that you had asked admissions at various schools when you were starting to feel them out? Some of the schools attending I...
I am a student that is considering UAB for Occupational Therapy. I thoroughly enjoyed the interview and meeting the students. I was wondering if anyone would be able to share information about the program:
What are the classes like?
How is the classroom dynamic with classmates?
I'm currently a high school senior.
So far I've only been looking at in-state colleges and potential future medical schools in the US so far. At one point I looked at a medical school overseas in Ireland but I quickly forgot about that as I was more focused on other things.
I was curious how I should input a particular activity/set of activities:
1) I am a medical laboratory technician at a urology clinic
2) I am the only lab tech, so I also hold the title of Lab manager and duties (validating lots, Quality Control continuity, proficiency testing, "Small team...

I have a few interviews coming up. I have heard that DPT programs love when you ask questions, but I am not sure what to ask considering I have researched everything I could find about the school and asked the admissions office all of the other questions I had. Any ideas?
I recently scored an interview with Midwestern University in Downers Grove! Can anyone who has had an interview here explain to me what the process is like and what types of questions are asked?
I am starting to study for Step 1. I saw sample test questions on the USMLE web, but I feel they are very similar test. For example, you are asked for diagnosis in both.
Thank you so much guys! I am IMG, so is a little bit difficult to catch some information.
I'm interviewing for a spot on my school's admissions committee. I have no idea what kind of questions I will be asked. I would appreciate any advice on the types of questions if anyone has been through this in the past. Thanks!
You know that "bulletin" they send you when you sign up for the test? If you're smart, you'll study those questions very closely. If you search this forum you'll find out why :)
Here's the thing nobody else will tell you though. There are multiple versions of the CPJE bulletin and it's wise to...
Sorry about this, but any advice would be helpful! I am definitely interested in DO but my dream school (a pipe dream with my GPA) is MD and I need to at least try first? Do I have a shot?
Undergrad: Neuroscience (BS), Sociology (BA) and chemistry minor
GPA: 3.5 (I know it's pretty...

For those of us anxiously awaiting test results, could you shed any light on how many you got wrong vs. your score? I was performing well on practice tests, but know I made some silly mistakes along the way and am trying to calm my nerves. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
1. Main tasks?
3. Most common procedure?
4. How did you get into this career?
5. Likes and dislikes?
7. Personal characteristics needed to be successful as a neurologist?
8. Changes you see in the future?
9. How often you see patients?
Would you recommend starting random UWorld question blocks even if I haven't seen the content in months? I'm starting my dedicated now and it seems like a waste to do questions for say pulmonology when I likely remember maybe 15% of that material from my class and the FA I read at that time...
Hi all! Kind of a non-trad here. I'm currently considering DO school, as I've had a sudden spark in interest. Figured I'd look into it a little more.
My problem is, I have extremely minimal background in sciences. I graduated with a BA in Policy Studies concentrating in Health, Crime and Human...

1) If I intend to eventually...
So for each block my school posts questions pertaining to the lectures. Lately I've noticed that for some questions they are basically copy and pasting questions from Webpath. It's kind of annoying cause they don't give us many questions as it is and now they're taking from our pool of outside...
I have a group interview at Elmhurst College for their MOT (OT Master's Program) this upcoming week.

Hey everyone! What have been some non-traditional interview questions you have been asked at your interviews? A lot of schools seem to ask about your non-academic achievements and I'm trying to think of a good response to this question. I was thinking of talking about the time I won the regional...

So just had my interview recently at a state school, and both interviews were scheduled to be 1 hr each. Problem is that I talked to both doctors for about 45-50 mins each.
I'm scared I asked too many questions. The interview was more like a conversation and I got caught up asking follow up...
Hey everyone, I have several questions. For certain questions pertaining to my college search, I am a Texas resident from a low-income family.
So I'm considering pre-medicine and a major of some sort, of course, as my options for college, and I have been for a while, but I have a few questions...
Hi! I'm struggling with the general chemistry section of the DAT. I was originally going to take my DAT on July 31st but I wasn't scoring consistently (fluctuating from 16-20) on the different tests I have taken, so I pushed my exam back. I use mostly Kaplan and just started DAT Bootcamp, and...

Anyone else stressing hard over these or am I overthinking them? How heavily are these weighed by schools? It really annoys me how we have to complete these before being able to submit to certain schools :/ My main application is literally waiting to be submitted
Hi everyone so I was just curious whether if following ARIs study guide and reviewing for ~5 weeks would be worth it? A lot of people are telling me that i should be doing a lot more questions than review. I know every case is different but I start officially studying tomorrow and I was...
Well, it's that time again- AADSAS opens tomorrow, and the inevitable flood of questions will soon follow. Instead of spamming the board, I thought it would be nice to carry on the tradition of a centralized thread for random questions you may have. I will do my best to answer questions, but I'm...
So under the state listed for childhood, AMCAS states:
In what area did you spend the majority of your life from birth to age eighteen?

b) Do you have friends or family in this region of the country?
