So I recently passed my entrance exam into paramedic school in the chicago area, and now I am going for an oral interview the end of August. This particular program had 80 applicants, and anyone who scored an 80% or higher on the entrance exam gets invited back for an interview. They will only take a max of 30, and word is average is 22-25 students.
They say they prefer EMT-B’s with experience and I have 6 months experience in the street, granted it is with a private, but it is still experience, and from my testing date alone at least 10-12 people had 0 experience.
Now how should I approach the interview? I really do not know what to expect. I do know that one of the main areas on paramedic school is anatomy, of which I only took in high school and didn’t really learn much.
I have recently purchased an anatomy book and intend to teach myself some before class just to be a little more prepared, the first month or so of the class is all anatomy so it will be taught there. I just dont want to come off wrong if they ask how Im preparing and i go on to say ive bought books etc. Does that seem ok??
I really dont know what else to ask, just if anyone has ever been to an interview for this or something like this, where it will all come down to the teachers preference of people, she can take as many as she wants up to 30 or as few as she wants. I want to make a good first impression, but not come off as needy.
