I would like some input from current applicants and current students with regards to how to prepare for an interview. I have had one MSTP interview so far (UTSW) and have 6 more interviews over the coming 2 months (UPenn, Case, UAB, Rochester, Northwestern, and Hopkins MD [rejected MSTP at Hopkins ]). My UTSW interview was ok. I prepared for it it by being able to: 1. Answer why their school was good for me. I mentioned specific faculty I like, how the school is good at the type of work I am interested in, clinical facilities, etc 2. Discuss my research and its limitations. 3. Answer why MD/PhD, not just MD or PhD 4. Talk about why my area of interest [neuroscience, molecular psychiatry] is fascinating to me. Is this the sort of thing I should be doing? My UTSW interviews gave me some confidence, but they only had 3 30 minute interviews. My UAB interview coming up has a total of 10 interviews, so I am worried they will be different and tougher. For example, would an interviewer ask me what is the most interesting scientific paper I have read recently? What my fav journals are, etc? Any advice on what I should do for interviews would be greatly appreciated.
