Making the Most of Your Interview

Congratulations on your invitation to MCPHS for a virtual, faculty interview! An interview is an important next step in the admission process, so we have designed this page to provide you with helpful tips for your interview.

To begin preparation for your interview, you should review your application and be ready to talk about all aspects of your file from academic history, work experience (if any), and extracurricular activities.

Research MCPHS

Prior to your MCPHS interview you should research the University. Visit our website, talk to friends who have attended the University, and read the information that has been sent to you. Having a good base-knowledge about us will help you ace your interview.

Practice Your Interview

If you are new to the interview process, you might consider performing a mock interview. Ask a friend, a colleague, or a family member to perform a mock interview and ask sample questions, such as:

  • What are your strengths?
  • Why do you want to attend MCPHS?
  • What courses did you most enjoy in your undergraduate experience?
  • What, or who, has most influenced your decision to apply to this program?

Prepare Your Own List of Questions

Although you should have a good base-knowledge of MCPHS coming into your interview, you are encouraged to bring your own list of questions. The MCPHS interview is an opportunity for you to ask questions as well.

Make a Good Impression

On the day of your interview it is important to make a good impression. Dress as you would for a professional job interview and select appropriate attire. Most of all, you should:

  • Be on time
  • Be yourself
  • Have fun
