    Hello Everyone,
    I am applying to AA programs this cycle and I have gotten a few interviews. I was seeing if there were any people on here that was familiar with the type of questions asked and how they tend to differ with medical school interviews. I've found a ton of info on medical school interviews and been preparing based off that info(I assume they will be simular ish), but was just looking to see if anyone had more specific info on anesthesia assistant ones in particular.

    Thank you!

    Incase you were still interested in my top choice, it was nova. Their faculty seemed seemed "closer" with their students. Ie. Students had faculty phone numbers, they would joke around and mess with each other. It was just overall more laid back and less formal than some of the other schools. If I cracked a joked they laughed and joked back. At some other schools I got crickets. That was important to me. Their facilities were super nice (they are actually upgrading them for my class so it will be even better) lastly, they were simulation heavy early in their program. I'd rather that than be thrown into clinicals early on, which is a pretty common thing with some schools. Also, I'm from the south. Colorado is too damn cold(I've never even seen snow much less driven in it) and driving in Houston stressed me out more than an orgo final, so there's that lol.
