Interview Format

Interview Day Program (2020-2021 application cycle)

Our goal is to host a virtual interview day program that will allow both you, as an applicant, and CMSRU, as a school, to gather reliable, valid information and provide a fair experience for all participants. Our interview format has been designed to give us insight into the character of each applicant. It is meant to be a relaxed conversation and not an interrogation. The virtual interview format is new to CMSRU and we acknowledge the unusual circumstances created by the coronavirus pandemic. Our intent is to keep the process transparent and as straightforward as possible for you as an applicant. We also acknowledge that unforeseen circumstances may arise that could impact a scheduled interview session and that we will work together with you to minimize and respond to these.

The planned program for the 2021 application cycle will include the following:

*The WebEx platform will be used for all virtual meetings and interviews
