Typical Interview Visit

We design our interview visits to be as relaxed and stress-free as such processes can be.

While these visits are used by the MSTP to find out more about each applicant, we also recognize that these visits are an opportunity for the applicant to learn more about the UC San Diego MSTP — so we invite all of our interviewing applicants to come with an eager mind, many questions, and as devoid of negative stress as possible!

2-Day Process

The visits generally occur over a 2-day period. You will check into the hotel the day before your first interview.

  • One of the interview days: student interview, 2 faculty interviews, a campus tour, and dinner with current MSTP students.
  • Other interview day will consist of SOM Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs) and research talks.
