Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine Interview Details

Interview Format: Your interview day is an important part of the Admissions Committee's assessment of candidates for admission. Interviews are not meant to be stressful, and your interviewers will have had the opportunity to review your file prior to the interview. The interview is intended to be an exchange of information between you and your interviewers. It is likely that your interviewers will ask about your interest in and knowledge of Podiatry, as a career.

An equally important purpose of the interview day is to give you a chance to learn more about the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine and Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. You will be able to ask faculty, staff, and Scholl Ambassadors any questions you may have. The student ambassadors will take you to lunch and give you a tour of campus.

The day will conclude at approximately 3:30 p.m.

If your plans change and you are no longer able to attend, please notify our office via phone (847-578-3204) or email. We ask that you notify us at least one business day prior to your scheduled interview.

Check-in Instructions: Please plan to arrive before 11:00 a.m. Check-in will take place in the lobby of our Main Entrance (A on the campus map). The Admissions Committee cannot guarantee an interview to a late applicant. Business attire is highly recommended, and there will be a tour of campus and the Foot and Ankle Center, so comfortable footwear is also encouraged.

To ensure that the interview process runs smoothly and to allow for the possibility of delays beyond your control, (i.e. weather, traffic, etc.) we suggest that if you are from outside the area that you arrive in North Chicago one day early. All transportation and accommodation expenses are your responsibility. Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine reserves the right to cancel interview dates due to inclement weather or other unexpected situations. If this occurs, every attempt will be made to notify you and re-schedule your interview.
