    I also heard it was very casual. They want to make sure you would be a good fit into their program. I'm doing the interview in person later in May. Good luck to you guys

    By doing a phone interview, I feel like I'll be selling myself short as they won't be able to put a name with a face. I also wonder if that will play into their decision. One would think it would.

    A co worker of mine who also live in NY went out there, I honestly think that it's better for them to see you in person and see how you are in person. I just feel like it leave alot of ambiguity out there for them. And what if I did the phone interview and didn't get in. I dont wanna sit there and say to myself, oh crap well maybe I would have gotten in if I went out there. Nah, no regrets here.

    You're probably right as far as going there in person for the interview. I myself though chose a phone interview. I wanted to get it done as soon as possible and with my current busy schedule and finances, it was the best option. Good luck to everyone on their interviews!!

    I had my interview today for SMU. It was over the phone, I live in Oregon. It was pretty casual like others have posted. They did give me a scenario at the end and asked me a few questions about what interventions I would do. Overall I think I did ok for my first interview, I have room for improvement though.

    Just had my interview, there were no clinical questions in my interview. The mostly talked about the program and the interview lasted 30 min.

    Just had my interview which lasted an hour with an easy clinical scenario. The scenario was really easy for me due to prior working experiences. However, overall it was fairly standard, laid back type deal, Good luck to everyone else !
