    How important is
    the medical school interview?

    "One of the most frustrating experiences in this job is to watch a student with excellent credentials, who I strongly suspect will make an excellent physician, go down in flames in the interview. It is clear that some students have been coached on the interview process and others have not ... if you get offered an interview, there is a chair in that school’s first-year medical school class with your name on it. Based on your performance in the interview, you will either claim it or give it away."
    Quinn Capers IV, MD
    Associate Dean for OHSU College of Medicine

    Are you ready for your medical school interview?

    You will be rejected by medical schools with a "good" interview.
    Even with a 3.7 and a 514.

    Don't let all of your hard work go to waste.
    Finish strong.

    "Hi Jiwon!  So great to hear from you!  I'm not sure if [JL] is checking this email often. [JL] decided to go to her first choice all along...Yale. :) She is absolutely thriving and loving school and her classmates!  Super small, close and supportive class - and embracing the "take any additional classes you want in any grad school" philosophy there. You are a rockstar Jiwon.  She couldn't have done all this without you!!!  I hope you are well and wish you and your family a very happy holiday!!! My Best, [SL] "
    -Mother of JL, Yale Class of 2020


    "Thanks a lot! I think my biggest issue with the personal statement was the content, or rather for the most part I know what I'm going to say, just not how to say it. Definitely appreciated the advice for the activities section. Thank you so much for your help!"
    - TD, MSTP, UCI Class of 2018 


    "The interview prep package isn't cheap. But this is a relatively small investment considering I paid almost $2000 for the MCAT, which is only one part of the application. I actually wasn't too sure what to expect until I had the mock MMI. The stations were pretty realistic, especially the ones with standardized acting patients. Dr. Youm's comments were so candid, to the point, and really, really helpful. I don't really need to say much more because ... I got into my top choice!!!"
    -YL, Stanford Class of 2017


    "Jiwon! I got into DGSOM at UCLA. Thank you so much for your advice and questions. It really really helped a lot!"
    - JK, UCLA Class of 2019


    "We got a lot of positive feedback from the premeds that came and listened to your talk.  They were really happy to hear a presentation with practical advice early on in their premed careers, so thanks a lot for coming out last week.  Given the number of people interested in the event, we would definitely seek a bigger room next time!  We'd love to welcome you back in the future.  Take care."
    - Stanford Premedical Association, 11/1/14


    "Dr. Youm helped me prepare for all of the challenging questions and MMI scenarios that I ultimately encountered in my medical school interviews. His feedback during each session was incredibly insightful and personalized. Looking back, I realize just how much I improved since my first mock interview. In addition, Dr. Youm draws upon his recent experiences in evaluating applicants as a member of UCSF’s admissions committee. His advising was tremendously helpful throughout each of the different stages of the application process."

    - AR, UCI Class of 2019



    "I just wanted to thank you for all the help you have given me over the past year. Your encouragement and advice were both invaluable to me. When the dean called me, he specifically mentioned my answers to interview question about how I would use research in the future as a deciding factor in their decision! From your help on essays to interview prep, I do not think I would have earned a position in medical school without you. 
    Thank you again, Dr. Youm. I hope to thank you in person in the future."
    - JK, Georgetown SOM Class of 2021
