The goal of the medical school application process is to identify applicants who are ready to learn in medical school and whose values and goals align with a medical school’s mission and goals. In general, interviews take place after admissions staff have reviewed applications and selected a subset of applicants from whom they want to collect more information. Being invited to interview is an indication that a medical school is interested in understanding more about you, the person behind the application. After interviews, admissions decisions are made.
