    I know that it's an interview for the waitlist, but hey, Ill take any interview.

    Can those of you who interviewed there, tell me what it's like there, and what kind of questions you were asked?

    I appreciate it!!! Thanks!

    Oldman,

    I applied really late in the process so this is my second interview. Im also still on hold at another school. But Loyola would be my first choice if accepted. Did you interview at Loyola?

    i interviewed at loyola in early jan and will be going there in july. it was also my first choice. you should really check out interviewfeedback.com for good advice on this school. i know that site was down for awhile, but it should be up now. the interview is really laid back. i know you will be nervous anyway, but just try and be friendly and relaxed. you will meet with two doctors (i met with a family practice MD and an oncologist/hematologist MD/PhD) and the dean of admissions. you will also have a tour with a student. brush up on all the usual interview questions. talk about your personal interests. i spent a full 15 mins talking about running marathons with the PhD guy. i talked a lot about my clinical experiences. the family practice MD basically told me "i am here to be your advocate to get you into this school. tell me all about yourself, your experiences, and explain anything on your application or your transcripts that could come into question when we review your file. i want to be prepared to defend you". that was kind of an open format, but i went into full detail about my low-GPA semester in college and everything i have learned working on the hospital and on the ambulance. just try to not be intimidated but any questions, and be honest if you don't know. and check out interviewfeedback.com. lots of specific questions there. you will love loyola. the students are really friendly and fun, and they have a great gym. :) overall, it would be a great place to spend four years. good luck!!!

    Thanks EMTgirl! Congrats on Loyola! It's a really great school. I just wish that I would have applied earlier so that I could have interviewed earlier. But I guess i'll just hope that the waitlist will have some heavy movement. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

    i wonder if we've had any classes together :D

    i interviewed in loyola in october - it's a great place. first interview was super easy, laid back. second one was a little more intense - a lot of ethical/current event issues (what should we do to prepare for/defend against bioterrorism - i didnt know). i would just say, dont be surprised if one interview seems a little abrasive. in the end, it apparently didnt matter tho, i got in anyway - i'll be withdrawing from my spot, hope you get it :p

    I forgot to ask, does anyone know how the waitlist works at Loyola? Is it ranked? Do the people who interview in April automatically go to the end of the list? How do they choose people, do they just go from the top down, or do they have another system of filling the class? thanks!
