    Is anyone know what question they gonna ask in the interview? Have anyone ever had interview at USC? Please share your experience to me. I would highly appreciate your help.

    Also got an interview invite last Friday - thought you might be interested to know (I was) that they said their class in only half full.

    Also- I withdrew, so hopefully someone who waiting for an invite may get one sooner... I hope.

    I got an invite last friday too...
    From what i hear, you shouldn't worry about the interview...there won't be a one-on-one interview and you won't be asked any personal questions...it'll be a pbl (just like their program) interview...they just wanto see how u interact with the rest of the group, I guess
    I'm having my interview pretty soon so I'll let u know how it goes after i'm done...

    One of my current classmates had the same interview experience last year and he said that it was very relaxed.....the one-on-one interviewer basically asked him like one question, i think it was "is USC your first choice?" or something like that, and that was about it. I dont know if thats the case for everyone's interviews but he said it wasn't stressful at all. Hope this helps!

    I know I PM'ed you this already but just thought i'd post it here too so if anyone else is curious about the personal interview they can read on as well..GOOOLUCK ALL!!! :D

    Hiiii!!! Welll...I was in the same boat as you...interviewed last year but didn't get in and had a personal interview this year and GOT IN!!!! The personal interview is really chill...after you do all the other activities, you go on a personal interview. It was really relaxed...just asked me what i've done to improve my application since last year, if i've interviewed anywhere else/why go to USC then...What's ur first choice? why dental school...she asked me pretty typical questions....anyways GOOOOODLUCCKKKKK!!! Hope to see you as a TROJAN too as wellll.

    Michael!

    I'm still waiting also. Mine says "no status". I heard from another member the status does change and usually you get a letter in the mail saying your application is under critical review which is the last level. After that if your granted an interview I guess you get an invite? I'm sure someone else can elaborate.

    Really? Did you try calling them? Guess there is no pattern? Wish we could figure this out.

    I just got an email today inviting me for an interview.

    It listed three dates:

    Thursday, April 5
    Monday, April 23
    Wednesday, April 25

    And said that these are the last ones being offered. Just wanted to share the info.

    I called and signed up for the 5th.

    I've already sent a deposit elsewhere, but the opportunity to stay in SoCal beckons...

    Any tips on the interview here? a little practice pbl, eh? haha

    haha, nice memory.

    I would too; but my family & friends are all in socal. And i keep hearing about how "it doesn't matter where you went to dschool" and it makes sense to me; how many ppl can say what school their dentist went to?

    also, sc connects me to a vast alumni network here in socal and keeps me near enough to hear about any openings for practices later.

    caught between wanting to live in another part of the states for a bit and staying near support...

    we'll, we'll see if I even get in first...
