I suggest anyone reading this post to partake in this, it will be very helpful (even I will be participating as an interviewer :P). These practices are not done by distance (skype).

Interview invites are coming early next week guaranteed.

OK thanks! Too bad that it's not online (a 7 hour drive probably isn't realistic for practice), but I'm sure those who can participate will get a great benefit!

Hello again, 

Mr Duck is Mr Right in this case.

@msophie, interview invites and regrets will be sent very shortly. It will definitely be sent out before the sign up times.

@Comprehensible, there was discussion about this topic since your post, but unfortunately due to the complexity of organizing Skype interviews (eg. they would only make up a small proportion of mock interviews, and it is difficult to ensure that people who are really far away sign up for it instead of those who are within a more reasonable driving distance but would sign up out of practicality), and the risk of technical issues hindering or completely preventing the mock interview from taking place, we will only be holding face to face interviews this year, as in years prior. I'm sorry, and I hope you can still make it though! (There will be sign up times on Saturday February the 17th that start at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm, which might be more practical for those who are out of town.)

Good luck in the coming days.

Wishing you well,

Christopher & Nicole

Hello Christopher and Nicole! 

What dates and times will these mocks be held on? These aren’t available on the sign-up yet, and I’d like to know for travel arrangements if possible.

Thanks!

Good morning Christopher and Nicole, 

Thank you for the dates and time for the mock interviews. For planning purposes, which of these time slots will be held in French ? 

Thanks and have great day :D

@Snowden the med students have no relation to the admissions process, what happens in mock stays in mock! Of course, we are here to give you advice. Confidentiality goes both ways.

Mr Duck

Out of curiosity, would we be required to sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) should we choose to partake in these mock interviews?

Hello again,

@liveyourdream, there will be French interviews during each of the listed times. However, Monday has the highest proportion of French interviews, and during the rest of the days the proportion is reversed. But it's very possible to come any day if you're quick with the signup, I hope!

@Snowden, you and Mr Duck are correct. The mocks are run by first-year students who are not related to the Admissions Committee in any way. However, we do ask that you treat this as you would your real interview in regards to professionalism.

@LUUO, there is a waiver that we ask you sign and provide before your mock interview, though I do not believe it counts as an NDA. It is currently available from the sign up site, and relates more with declaring the scope of the mock interviews.

Thanks!

Christopher & Nicole

@friedchickendude, is it working for you now?

@Snowden, thank you for bringing this to our attention; I didn't know this was a possible setting until you brought this up. The names have been hidden. Although, just because someone signed up, doesn't necessarily mean that they have received an interview invite. The validation comes later on.

Thank you,

Christopher

Hello @Sincere,

Great question! It's up to you, but we would suggest anywhere in the spectrum between business casual and the business professional wear you plan on wearing to your real interview.

From what I could tell last year, a significant proportion if not most people were wearing clothes suited (haha) for the real interview, some could say this allows to fully recreate the experience and reduce stress during the real interview. Others prefer to keep their suits/dresses/other nice, safe and locked away until interview day. Whatever works for you! :) 

Thanks,

Christopher & Nicole
