What Does Mcgill Look For In Med-P Interviews?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has an idea of what McGill is looking for in Cégep applicants in the multiple mini interviews. Like are they trying to get a feel for who you are / what your personality is or are they actually concerned with your logic/critical thinking/knowledge? Because I said some stupid things in my interview as I misunderstood a question or two for example. So I am wondering if I should count myself out because I made myself sound dumb a few times or if they don't actually care about the answer itself? Thanks so much

Obviously, content of your answers are an important consideration. However, often candidates mess up at least one station and still can be accepted. I messed up at 2 stations and was still accepted, off a wait list, on my first attempt at medical school. However, this is a competitive process and everybody is ranked according to performance.

They're both important. How you reason through a challenging social scenario is as much a measure of your personality as it is of your critical thinking. Some stations focus more on critical thinking than others, but I don't think you can get away with a good personality alone, just as strong critical thinking skills paired with a crap personality won't get you far either. Don't stress about how you think you did - it's very normal to second-guess your answers. And the people who feel really good coming out of the interview aren't necessarily the ones who get in. Good luck :)
