Personal Interview
If you have been invited to attend a personal interview with the university, you need to take it as an opportunity to convey your goals and commitment to the admissions committee. Please make sure that you are reviewing your secondary and standardized application for the school. If you have received any study material that the university itself has sent you then you should take the trouble of going through the same thoroughly.

How Can You Prepare for the Interview? Know What you Would be Tested On: The reason why you have been called for the personal interview is clear. You have had the opportunity to prove your knowledge in your written examinations, now the interviewer or the admissions committee also wants to judge your interpersonal skills, your commitment to the medicine industry, your compassion (one of the key qualities of medical practitioners) towards others etc. The committee would be definitely looking at your problem-solving and decision-making skills- whether you’re tolerant towards cultural differences or not etc. When it comes to proving your commitment towards the medical university you need to convey that you have taken a well informed decision to join the medical industry and that you’re equally sure about your decision of applying to the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. You must also be able to demonstrate your own understanding of the physical and emotional demands of this career and your abilities to meet those demands.
