20 Questions You Should Ask During Your Caribbean Medical School Interview

When you face an interview to attend any institution of higher learning, you should expect to answer a variety of questions. This is how the interviewer will discern whether you would make a good fit for their college or university. However, you should also come to such an interview with questions of your own. Just as the interviewer will do, you should ensure that your questions help you determine whether the school will make a suitable match for your needs and objectives for the future.
