Out of all MMI's interviews I have had Albany's was the one I was least prepared for, I had a stressful week with work and one of my children was sick and that was stressful as it is, so I didn't have enough time to prepare as I would have liked. I literally looked at my application the night before and watched a couple of Course Grindr interview playlist that night. I think the MMI tests your ability to see from both side of the fence and see why someone might disagree with your stance and that doesn't make you or them right or wrong( &also if you're personable). As you said, if you weren't judgemental, took your side and explained your reasoning while acknowledging the other side, then you're good imo. I literally had an acting station and told the actor "sorry you feel that way." when I was trying to console them . Thankfully this was the second to the last station so it only affected my confidence going into the next station. I kept thinking about that statement and how I ruined my chances, clearly that didn't affect me cos I got accepted. Have confidence in yourself, I'm sure you'll be fine.
That makes me feel so much better, thank you! I felt like this is what they were getting at, so it’s reassuring someone else felt the same way.

Did anyone else get a meet and greet invite along with their interview invite by the Underrepresented Student Alliance at the school? Just wondering if anyone can speak about their experience if they attended. Thanks!
I received an invite and reached out to the email provided to set up a meeting time. But they never responded. On my interview day I talked with the other individuals Interviewing and it sounded like some received the email and some did not. However, the email I received originally went to my spam inbox so that may have been the case for others and they never saw it.

I'm not sure if everyone got it or only minority applicants got it. Because I think I (a white male) only got it because I mentioned I'm LGBTQ+ in my secondary.

I had a similar experience. I found it in spam and I emailed but no response yet... Did anyone actually get to do the MeetnGreet for this?

It was also in my spam but I found it before my interview. Reached out and requested a meeting with 1GMed, and had a very casual conversation with someone on the board after the interview (around 30 min long, at the school's cafe). It was nice to hear another student's perspective and to have the opportunity to ask more questions!

I actually also received the email (minority & 1st gen in medicine), & saw it in my spam last minute, luckily right before my interview in October. It was such a great experience. The people there are so down to earth. Definitely one of my top choices.

I got the email and I am straight and Asian (so ORM). It was also in my spam folder.

If it makes you feel any better I declined the seat, so maybe you’re next in line!

It’s been real, y’all. Good luck to all of you on the rest of your journeys!
