    I just interviewed there last Tuesday. My faculty interviewer was Dr. Kjos and she was so laid back and so fun to talk to, we actually went over by about 15 min (and it was an hour interview). There is also a student interview, but I was told that those students aren't even on the committee, they just fill out a form that is added to your file. BTW, the lunch they give you is amazing. Good luck and have fun!

    I agree, I interviewed with Dr. Chandor, and it was one of the best interviews I've had. My student interviewer (4th year) was also very nice. Ditto about the lunch, too.

    how do you go about finding who your faculty interviewer is before hand?

    I read the interview feedbacks for keck and someone mentioned- they knew who it was before hand.

    Will the admissions office tell you if you call?

    I had an interview with an alumni near my house, Dr. Loo. It was the best interview I've had, very relaxed and conversational. Towards the end, he did all of the talking and gave me some advice about the whole med school application process. The student interview is just to make sure you're normal.
    Keep in mind, only ~500 people are interviewed and, eventually, accept about 2/3 of those. So, if you've got an interview, you're in a great position!

    I have, and I'm pretty sure pocwana has too. I interviewed the very first day (10/15) and my letter is postmarked 12/5 - I actually heard after people who interviewed a little later than I did, so I think they are doing this is batches rather than a strict order.

    For those of you who had their faculty interview off campus, where on the status page did their information appear, and when did it show up? The reason I am asking is that my interview is tomorrow (Wed 3/26) and there is nothing on my "Interview Procedures" site that says anything about my interviewer. The off-campus faculty interview was on the same day as the scheduled interview, right? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks! =)

    at the very top of my status page, it says:

    This is to confirm that arrangements have been made for you to be interviewed by the following individual on:

    10/16/2002 at 2:30pm with:

    Ronald Loo, M.D.
    INFO
    ADDRESS
    PHONE NUMBER

    the status check is at https://keck-admit.hsc.usc.edu/ (but i see that you have that already)


    The interview is the same day as the scheduled interview with the student and tour on campus. if it's not there today, call USC and ask them for your interviewers info because you have to call him/her and confirm. good luck to you.
