Interview Day Information
You must be invited for a virtual interview to be considered for admission. Interviews are held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Approximately 56 applicants are interviewed weekly utilizing a Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) format. The JSSOM MMI will consist of seven 8-minute interviews. Applicants will have 3 minutes to read a scenario before each interview. Your interviewer will then connect, and you will have 8 minutes to respond and engage in dialogue. Interviewers consist of faculty, staff, residents, and students. During one of the interviews, you will have the opportunity to sell yourself, discuss your interest in JSSOM, and ask questions of our faculty.
Interview Orientation Day Information
Each applicant that is invited for an interview is required to attend an Interview Orientation Day. Orientation will take place on the Friday prior to the applicants scheduled interview day.

Scheduling Your Interview:
Once an applicant has been granted an interview, applicants will have the opportunity to choose from 3 interview dates in the AMP application system. Once the applicant makes their interview day selection, confirmation will be sent to the applicant and
the Office of Admissions and Recruitment. All pertinent interview details will be sent to the applicant via email.
Rescheduling Your Interview Date:
The Office of Admissions and Recruitment recognizes that extenuating circumstances may arise that will necessitate rescheduling an interview date after confirmation. The applicant must notify our office as soon as the conflict is identified. Extenuating
circumstances will include only serious, unavoidable conflicts such as illness and personal or family emergencies. Rescheduling may result in a late interview date during the interview season.
