>Me: yo girl how are the med school apps going?
annon: pretty good, I actually have an interview next week.
Me: oh yeah? that’s sweet. Do they ask you science/technical questions for these interviews or is it more just getting to know you?
Annon: I mean, I think they’ll ask me why I want to be a doctor.

  1. >It’s true. They don’t typically ask technical questions unless you are describing any research you’ve done. I’ve had an interview where the dude just wanted to talk about rock climbing. Clearly the screening process for med school is needs to be adjusted.
