Before I was accepted to SGU I had already submitted my VMCAS for fall 2017 admission to some other schools.
I was ecstatic when I received an email from Western University of Health Sciences! They were my first in person interview. Luckily I have a friend that lives in California so I stayed with him for a couple nights prior to the interview and was able to check out the area and feel pretty settled by the day of my interview.
The interviewers were very nice and I felt like the interview was fairly laid-back. Similar to the process at SGU. I concluded my interview, got to see the campus, learn about financial aid, had a presentation on the curriculum and was able to get a sneak peek at their problem-based learning system. Overall I was very impressed with the students and faculty. It’s definitely different than the traditional learning style I have grown so accustomed to, but that’s probably one of its perks! I loved learning about the way they approach learning, and it’s always good to broaden your horizons.
I’m still hoping I will get more interviews, but every single one is important to me at this moment. It’s pretty exciting to finally be a candidate that’s actually considered. 😀
