Ok I want to share an interview experience and please let me know what you guys think it means, because I went to 10 interviews in total and didn't get anything like this. But what bears repeating is what Morninglight just said on another thread: </font><blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><hr /><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Originally posted by MorningLight2100: <strong>I think it's very difficult for us to judge how well our interviews actually "went," even if we feel that all progressed smoothly, because although we might be given signals that an interviewer likes/dislikes us, that interviewer's weight and role as pertains to the rest of the admissions committee is beyond our control! From my own experience. . . my interviews varied enormously, yet there seemed to be no correlation b/t interview & acceptance. I don't necessarily think it means that the interview has little effect, either, because in my case, my composite MCAT was below the average for a good portion of the schools at which I interviewed, and so I'm inclined to believe that the interview held more importance than it may have for someone with really stellar stats. </strong></font><hr /></blockquote><font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">At med school X, I was having a really cool conversation with the Associate Dean who happened to be doing interviews that day. After an hour long talk with me describing my undergrad years, my family background, service projects, academics e.g. she was so interested and persistent in trying to understand my humanities thesis project, because even though it was obscure it reminded her of some new research she had read about and she wanted to draw a connection . Then as I prepared to leave because I had to catch my flight, she matter of factly stated "I think you would be great as a student here, so I need to get you past the next stage of the review process which is a vote by a sixteen member committee. They will only look at the items in your file that I highlight, so help me present your file as you think will be most effective, by summing up and giving me any other information I need." I was like huh for a second, then I realized what she wanted and started talking continuously for 5 minutes while she scribbled down everything she could get. I really don't wanna get my hopes up. But has anybody else gotten such concrete feedback, where the interviewer didn't just give you positive signals, but wanted to go about the business of making sure you were accepted?
