Do interviews at Accelerated programs indicate probable Med school interviews?

<p>It is often said that if you get into an accelerated medical program from high school, you are capable of getting into medical school via the regular route.</p>

<p>But what if you got multiple interviews for accelerated medical programs from high school yet you didn't get into the accelerated medical programs? (i know this isn't the law so the same wouldn't apply) ISn't attaining interviews indicative of anything?? like maybe getting interviews via the regular route, considering getting an interview means a strong academic profile?</p>

<p>I'm curious to know what you guys think.</p>

<p>I think that one has very little to do with the other. You will be judged on your college career.</p>

<p>One thing it does tell us is that you need to brush up on your interviewing skills.</p>

<p>So you’re saying that getting interviews for the accelerated medical programs, yet not getting accepted, has no significant meaning in terms of how you’ll perform in medical school admissions via the regular route?</p>

<p>No, I’m saying that while you are viewing your “historical” glass as half full, I’m saying it can be viewed it as half empty: You present well on paper (get interviews) and then flub the interview (no acceptances). The same thing happens in med school apps.</p>

<p>People skills are critical in med school applications. You have to get rec’s from folks who know you. You have to perform well at interviews. Interviewing has been shown to be a weakness of yours. You should recognize it and work on it.</p>
