Mock Interview Program 2021:
Harvard School of Dental Medicine’s chapter of the American Student Dental Association is excited to invite you to apply for our Mock Interview Program!
What is the Mock Interview Program? This program is intended to prepare pre-dental students who are applying to dental school in the current (2021-2022) application cycle for their interviews. Mock interviews will be held virtually. Please note that you can only sign up for ONE mock interview through HSDM ASDA.
What are the details? Each pre-dental student (interviewee) will be matched one-on-one with a current student at Harvard School of Dental Medicine (interviewer). Once you have been matched, we will send you your interviewer’s name and contact information. You will then be responsible for reaching out to them so you both can find a time to meet virtually. During the mock interview, you will have the opportunity to practice answering common interview questions in an environment that simulates an actual dental school interview. The mock interview should last no longer than 30-40 minutes and will conclude with an additional 5-10 minutes of feedback from the HSDM student.
If chosen to participate in this program, we ask that you prepare in advance as you would for any other interview and that you make sure to show up for your assigned time slot (or let your interviewer know if that time no longer works for you). We want to make sure all spots are filled with students willing and excited to participate!
Who is this program designed for? This program is specifically for pre-dental students who have or are planning to submit an ADEA AADSAS or TMDSAS application in the 2021-22 application cycle. You do not need to have already been invited to a dental school interview yet to participate. This program is not designed for those who are applying into advanced standing programs for internationally trained dentists.
When will it take place? We hope you will schedule your mock interview during the late summer/early fall of 2021 (August-September), ideally before you receive most of your dental school interviews.
Where will it take place? Virtually, whatever platform works best for you and your interviewer (Zoom, Facetime, Google Hangouts etc.)
What is the deadline to apply? July 24th 4:00 pm ET
