Interview Day

Qualified applicants will be invited for an on-campus interview after a thorough review by our Admissions Committees.

The Twin Cities Interview Day Experience

The interview day experience on the Twin Cities campus is a full day program where our hope is you will walk away with more information about our school than you had when you entered the building.

You will be interviewing under the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) Program. The MMI is a circuit exercise, where applicants are presented scenarios that will measure non-cognitive characteristics such as communication skills, professionalism, ethical decision making and moral behavior.

Applicants will go through a 10 station circuit exercise (8 evaluated stations and 2 rest stations). Two of the 8 evaluated stations are team exercises. The stations will be 7 minutes in length with 4 minutes in between each station. Prior to beginning the MMI, each applicant will have 1 20-minute freeform recruitment conversation, which is a condensed version of the traditional one-on-one interview. This evaluated interaction allows you to meet with a member of our medical school community, where you will be asked some open-ended structured questions and you will also have the opportunity to learn more about the medical school community. For more information, please view this MMI presentation.

The Duluth Campus Interview Day Experience

On the Duluth campus, we interview Monday through Friday, and we usually host two to four candidates each day. You'll have two one-on-one interviews with voting members of our admissions committee. Each interview is scheduled for an hour so you have plenty of time to shine. Before your interviews, you'll have informal conversations with admissions and financial aid staff. After your interviews, you'll have lunch with other candidates and current medical students.
