Medical School Interviews – Take Notes

Everyone seems to bring a schnazy leather legal pad on interviews. But have you ever seen someone actually taking notes? Why bring it if you don’t use it? There’s no need to take notes during the actual interview, as that may seem pretentious. But definitely jot down your thoughts after each interview making note of:

Interview date
Interviewer name and title
Topics discussed
School positives
School negatives
Overall gut reaction

Taking 5 minutes to log your thoughts will be helpful in keeping the details of each school straight in your mind and remembering specifics to put in thank you notes. These notes can also be very helpful when you are making your final decision of where to attend medical school.

Interviews not going as well as you had hoped? E-mail for a one-on-one practice session with a Harvard/Stanford MD and medical school admissions expert!
