Interviews

Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI)
Yes, but only if the campus is closed to visitors
Purpose The LAU SOP recognizes that academic excellence is not the only benchmark for success. SOP uses multiple mini-interviews for candidates. This process allows interviewers to become acquainted with candidates. Structure Each candidate visits three committees and each committee is responsible for assessing one theme and the student's attributes in 5 to 7-minute sessions for a 20-minute interview. Interview Content Interview questions relate to the candidate's non-academic past experiences, performances and behaviors. Of note, during the pandemic, virtual interviews were conducted where each student was interviewed by 2 committees, each committee asking questions about the three themes.
