Question 1 of 40

East Carolina University’s Brody School of Medicine is discerning with admissions. What’s your contingency plan if not accepted this year?

One of the things The Brody School of Medicine prides itself on is how their faculty and administration emphasize close personal attention to the needs of individual students. Part of what makes this possible is through the design of their relatively small class sizes. With only 86 members in each entering class, students have the opportunity to know all of their classmates to a degree not possible in larger classes.

Knowing that admissions are competitive, your interviewers are curious about the range of your plans, and your determination to pursue your career. Would you take a gap year and start studying for next year to get a head start on your studies, or would you keep applying to any and every university until you are accepted somewhere? Your answer should speak to your determination and unwavering ambition. Let the interviewers know that one rejection won't stop you. Talk about your plan to reapply if rejected. Whatever path you choose, show the interviewers that you have confidence and drive. It'll take more than one rejection to keep you down!
