    I interviewed back in September at WVU. I believe it started at 11 or 11:30, can't remember. There was 2 other students with me that day. As soon as you get there, you are required to write 2 essays from the questions provided. These essays are then used later in the interview so take them seriously. We then took a tour of the school and had lunch in a conference room off from the cafeteria. We then finished the tour and met as a whole group with the admissions com. This group interview consists of introduction of yourself as well as an opportunity to ask questions. They like to see how you react with each other. Next you break off into your individual interviews. Mine was 2 on 1. I actually had the dean of admissions who was very nice. I do have to say this was probably a more intense interview than my other interviews this year. They drilled me for about 45 minutes and do ask about DAT,GPA etc. There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions. WVU strives to accept people who are going to practice in rural West Virginia, so don't tell them you plan to practice elsewhere. They only accept about 7 or 8 out of state applicants with 4 of them having strong ties to the state. The school is very nice and they are doing a lot of remodeling. I like the fact that tuition is pretty low. Residents under 10K, Non-residents under 20k. I wish you luck on your interview. The faculty are very nice and i'm sure you will do well.
