Stations for the 2021-2022 Application Cycle

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year’s MMI will be held on a virtual platform, Admit Video.  The MMIs will not be live. Students will be required to submit pre-recorded videos, which will be reviewed by evaluators at a later time.

For this year’s application cycle there will only be six stations, with three questions per station, and there will not be a written station. It is estimated that the MMI interview will take about two hours and 20 minutes from start to finish to complete, including a warm-up station.

Due to the change in format from live interviews to pre-recorded videos, there will be a warm-up station at the start of the MMI as practice, which does not count towards your score. This station is in addition to the six stations which do count, and it will replicate the set up of the stations which are graded.

Station Format and Timing

There will be an introduction video at the start of each station, followed by three questions. After the introduction video, you will be given a question, where you will have two minutes to prepare your answer, and another two minutes to record your response.

After your first question is complete, you will receive the next question for the station, and have two minutes to prepare, and three minutes to record your response.

When you reach your third and last question of the station, you will also have two minutes to prepare after reading the question, and another three minutes for your recording.

Upon finishing your third question, the station is now complete, and you will be moving on to the next station.

You will continue to complete the remaining stations the same way, until you are finished all six stations.

Date and Time

The MMI will be taking place on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. CST.

Invitations for interviews were sent out on January 7, 2021, and no registration is required. You will be automatically registered for the MMI.

Set-Up for Your MMI

  1. Be sure to have your ID handy, as you will be required to show it to the camera upon logging in.
  2. Find a quiet room without distractions to set up your computer.
  3. Ensure you have good lighting, avoiding shadows.
  4. Make sure the room you are in has a strong WIFI signal, and test this in advance.
  5. Sit in front of a blank wall or screen.
  6. Set up your computer at eye level to avoid having to look up or down while creating your pre-recorded responses.
