Before the event, you’ll receive student applications to review in advance to your interviews. Please bring these applications along with you to your clinics. On event day, you’ll conduct a 30-minute interview and feedback session with each student.

If you can't make it to campus for in-person interviews with students, we can arrange for the sessions to take place via phone or Skype.
