The Interview Day - What to Expect

Sample Interview Day Schedule

The interview process at MUSM is an opportunity for our faculty, students and admissions staff to learn more about you and it gives you a chance to learn more about MUSM, our M.D. program, and to meet with our faculty, staff and students.  

Each applicant will have two one-on-one, 30-40 minute interviews.  One of the interviews is with an Admissions Committee member who may be a basic science or clinical faculty member or a senior medical student.  Please be aware that both interviewers have access to the Primary Application, the Secondary Application, Letters of Evaluation before they interview the applicant and through the rest of that application year.  Each interviewer submits his/her comments for the Admissions Committee's consideration.  The Admissions Committee consists of 20 voting members, and  each Admissions Committee member has access to these comments as well as each applicant's primary and secondary application, letters of recommendation, and declaration of domicile in GA.  Applicants also have lunch with MUSM ambassadors, who are currently medical students at MUSM.  Please note that Ambassadors are assessing you during this interaction; please be informed that unlike interviewers and Admissions Committee members, they do not generally have access to an applicant's record.  MUSM Ambassadors also submit brief written comments based on their interaction with applicants at lunch.  This report is also included in the applicant's packet and is available to the Admissions Committee as they rate and rank applicants.

 

Lunch:  On your Interview Day, lunch will be provided.  You are welcome to bring your own food.  If you have any allergies, restrictions, please communicate them at least 2 days prior to the interview date to:

Jina Parrish (parrish_ja@mercer.edu) if interviewing on the Macon Campus;

Sabina Badalova (badalova_sn@mercer.edu) if interviewing on the Savannah Campus

 

We hope you'll enjoy your visit interviewing with us.  The Admissions Office welcomes your feedback on your experience with the application and interview process for the MD program at MUSM and will invite you to complete an anonymous survey after the interview.  If you have any concerns with the fairness of one or more interview encounters you experienced, we encourage you to bring it to the attention of the admissions dean before you leave campus at the end of your interview.  Please be aware the Admissions Deans and Admissions Office treat this feedback in confidence to evaluate the interview process, and intend to use it to address any concerns applicants may have.
