No essay. You're gathered in a room, you get an introduction by the dean, have a manual dexterity test, do a group activity, have a short break and then go into interviews. Panel interview, self-tour of school, financial aid session, a review of your transcript to make sure you are going to meet the pre-req's and then another tour of the clinic and stuff. That's about it.

Exactly as above poster said.

Don't worry about the questions. Why? For two reasons:

1) When talking to current students in AZ, they all agreed that getting them all correct was not the important part. All they want to see is if you don't live on Mars and know a little bit outside biology and chemistry. I think they want to see how you handle yourself by being interogated. In fact, I'm pretty sure at least one of the questions is designed to be super hard and they don't expect you to get right.

2) You can't study for them so don't stress about it.

The ones I met that were teaching were alright. The ones that were doing the interviewing were not that nice at all and I think they may have meant to be that way. If they didn't, well, then they suck. :)
