    It is competitive. There are only 10 spots available (they get 200 applications a year). They really care about your application essays, so don't blow them off.

    hm. i got one, but i'm instate.
    anyway, what are interviews for this program like? really intense?
    what are the questions geared towards-- activities or medical knowledge?

    I got one of the 10 University Distinguished Scholarships and I still didn't get an interview for the Med Scholars Program. I read on the site that they only take 10 and normally 8 or more are from Michigan (I'm from IL), so yeah, it's tough...

    Eeeeeee never mind I just got a call from the Honors College and I got an interview! I second starry's question...anyone have any insight as to what the interview is like? I know on the website it says you just need to know how to articulate your essay answers.

    Same here, I'm going next weekend, but I'm not taking the ADS test, so good luck to those who are.
  • starrymoodstarrymood Registered User Posts: 16 New Member
    had my interview and took the ADS test this past weekend...
    the friday ADS activities were kind of tiring, but the medscholar stuff was great
    undergrads and med students were there to answer questions
    and people from the admin office helped everyone get to their interview location on campus. it was great
    ...as for the test, it was completely random, what do you expect? haha
    good luck everyone!
  • ppenguin757ppenguin757 Registered User Posts: 434 Member
    Did any of the interview questions deviate from the application? I heard they didn't too much.
  • starrymoodstarrymood Registered User Posts: 16 New Member
    yeah, most questions were expanding on the application

    ...but just be ready for anything
  • me2008me2008 Registered User Posts: 47 Junior Member
    What were your thoughts about the interview?

    I thought mine was OK. I heard the final decisions are announced in the first week of March. Is that what you heard?
