Mock Interviews

Pre-Health Advising understands that interviews can be nerve-wracking. Unfortunately, we have limited appointments and are only able to offer mock interviews to applicants who have an interview request from a medical or health professions program. Contact at least two weeks in advance of your interview to schedule a mock interview time.

Important to Know:

Mock interviews with a full review are available for any current UIC students or alumni who have received an interview for medical school or a graduate health professions program. Applicants may only request a mock interview for advisor review if a professional school interview date has been secured.

Applicants may only request one mock interview for advisor review per application cycle.

Timing for Scheduling a Mock Interview:

Contact Pre-Health Advising at at least two weeks before your scheduled interview to request an in-person mock interview. During the busiest times of the academic year it may not be possible to schedule an in-person mock interview less than 2-3 weeks out.

You can find sample interview questions and information on preparing for your interview in the “Interviewing” folder in the Pre-Health Blackboard page.

Every health professions school that requires or recommends interviews as a part of the admission process has it’s own style and schedule to it’s interview days. However, there are some general types of interviews that you may wish to be prepared for. It is also possible to encounter more than one type of interview during your interview day. Read through the interview invitation carefully as you should receive information about what to expect. Don’t be afraid to reach out to pre-health advisors if you have questions!
