Medical School Interviews – Interview Etiquette

I am sure these tips will seem obvious to you, but you’d be surprised what some people try to get away with. During an interview, please avoid:

1. Chewing gum
2. Swearing
3. Racial slurs
4. Slang
5. “Um,” “like,” “ya know,” and other verbal fillers
5. Ticking anybody off

Be as nice to the receptionist as you are to the interviewer. Rude behavior to any of the medical school staff often gets back to the admissions committee and has been known to sink many an exceptional candidate.

Good luck!
