Interview Preparation for Medical School Applicants

Your Competitive Advantage on Interview Day.

As the final hurdle to medical school admissions, the interview has special significance.  An interview invitation is a clear indication that a university is seriously interested in you.  By performing strongly, you will be well-situated to gain admission to medical school.

Candidates who feel prepared, calm and confident can think more clearly when posed with challenging questions, which is one of the most determining factors for a successful interview performance. The best way to build confidence is by developing an appropriate framework to answering difficult questions, and practicing effectively.

Astroff's Interview Preparation Program

The quality of a coaching session is only as good as the quality of the coach.   The most important question is - who will be mentoring you?  

Dr. Robert Astroff, the company’s president, and nationally recognized expert on the medical school admissions process, personally selects the coaches to train you, including doctors (practicing physicians and residents) and medical students with impressive profiles.   Then, Dr. Astroff personally mentors our coaches, giving our clients unparalleled results.  

Chosen by Dr. Astroff.

Our process for selecting coaches is extremely rigorous. We receive hundreds of applications each year to coach for Astroff.  Our coaches are chosen by Dr. Robert Astroff based on their accomplishments and mentoring skills, ensuring they have the ability to effectively convey strategies on how to improve.  

World-class Coaches.

These individuals represent the future leaders in medicine.  Profiles include: Rhodes Scholar, Loran Scholar, academic gold medal winners, world championship debaters, and national level athletes at major universities.  Each coach is hand-picked for the unique profile and skill set that he/she brings to Astroff.

From Application to Admission.

At the time of their own applications, many of our coaches received multiple acceptance letters from prominent medical schools, providing further evidence of their strong profiles.  

Part of the Astroff Family.

Many of our coaches are former Astroff clients themselves and can personally attest to the effectiveness of our programs.  Coaches enjoy the ability to mentor others as they were mentored themselves.
