ASK AN AUGUSTANA ALUMNI ANYTHING

One way to explore your career options is to speak to professionals in fields that interest you. We encourage current Augustana Campus students to connect with our alumni through "Ask an Augustana Alumni Anything." Students have the opportunity to ask questions or seek advice from alumni who share their career stories and experiences in a wide range of industries. These Q&As are sent directly to current students' emails and are hosted on Facebook and Instagram throughout the year.


Multiple Mini Interviews

Many programs, particularly those in health-related fields, use Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) for admission into their programs. MMIs are thought to better handle the biases of interviewers, more accurately predict academic performance, and assess non-cognitive skills like interpersonal skills, professionalism, critical thinking and ethical decision making. Candidates rotate through a circuit of stations where they are asked a question or posed a scenario. Interviewees are given a short time to prepare before delivering their response. Interviewers remain at the same station assessing the same question or scenario.

Our MMI Days

We simulate the MMI environment as closely as possible and tailor the questions and scenarios based on the field. You will have the choice of 3 different time slots throughout the day.

After participating in an MMI Day, you will receive both verbal and written feedback to help improve your interview performance.
