SMDEP Houston: Getting into Medical School

some of the things that I forgot to mention are: We had a personal statement workshop which was super helpful because I basically have the personal statement I plan on using for my applications. We had a mock interview with medical students and the administrators of SMDEP We got some general advice on the interviewing process like top 20 questions asked and how to answer and things like that. ***** if you do bring your car, you’ll have to really need to use it to go somewhere. So you’re at rice and you’re living close to the hospital and schools, but you’re parking on the otherside of campus and it’s a mile walk damn near. and its like 60 bucks for the closest parking, which is the one thats a mile away. so you have to walk there. though there is a church that i parked at because I was genius but its on main street and just make a left out of Rice and you’ll see it on the right hand side and you’ll walk between it and the Memorial Herman professional building and parking garage on a daily basis. But it’s free to park there and its only like 100 yards away. oh and the attire is business or scrubs. the guys were usually wearing shirt and ties but scrubs on days that we had anatomy labs and micro bio. the girls mostly wore scrubs all the time, but when they didn’t they wore like a blouse with pants of a skirt. dresses are cool too. but you can wear scrubs everyday or shirt and ties everyday it really just depends on you. but no jeans or shorts or anything like that. oh and

    I think you have to be in college… because your acceptance is based on your grades.

  3. Is it possible to apply to SMDEP while I’m in high school and AZ? I have a biological father who is a resident of TX and will have 60 community college credits (but they include for Anatomy, Physiology, and Microbiology). Plus, did you have to send in a copy of a parent’s federal income tax form? Thanks :D

  4. Hey this video helped me out a lot! I appreciate your opinions on the program. I definitely apply for it! :)

    I actually took a class on interviewing. No lie. I would look at the communication classes at your undergrad school or even local community colleges. But my school has a interviewing class and a persuasion class in the communication department. But if you don’t want to go that route you should just practice with acquaintances and friends, have them ask you the top 20 common interview questions that way you can practice your answers, segues, and excuses =]

  6. Hey Gary, congrats on getting into medical school. I have aspirations to go to Medical School as well. This coming up fall i will be a rising senior at my college and this year will be the time to prepare for the MCAT and go through my school’s reveiew committee. How did you prepare for your interviews?? My idea is to schedule as many interviews with my professors as possible; that way I can be a little more comfortable explaining my story under pressure. Do you have any further advice for me??

    Ah it’s hard to say. But pretty much the first day is just getting to know the tutors and the other scholars in the program and the other days are getting the hng of the classes and being told what is expected in the 6 weeks to come.

    But again I don’t remember the first days specifically because it was basically a year ago and its such an insignificant part of the program.
