interviews. Your postbaccalaureate interviewer will make every attempt to put you at ease to give you the opportunity to express the “real you.” LKSOM seeks candidates:

  • Who have strong interpersonal skills
  • Who have the ability to listen and take another’s point of view
  • Who possess self-confidence
  • Who are compassionate
  • Who are socially consciousness

Postbaccalaureate interviews will be held from January through May. Candidates participate in three interviews. One interview with a physician or PhD faculty member who is on the Admissions Committee, one with a faculty member who is blinded to the application materials, and a third interview with a member of the local community. In addition to the two interviews, you will meet with current LKSOM students..

After interview, applicants are notified of the Admissions Committee decisions on a rolling basis. Some candidates may be placed on the continuing candidate list after interview and will still be considered throughout the remainder of the admissions cycle. Each application cycle is unique; so the number of students taken off the continuing candidate list varies from year to year.
