Dr. Alyssa Marshall
Dr. Alyssa is a foreign trained dentist herself. She moved to the US from South Korea right after finishing dental school. With a low GPA and high hopes, she had no clue of what she needed to do to practice in the US.
After stumbling bad the first year of applying she learned many valuable lessons and excelled the second year, receiving multiple acceptances and even turning down interview invitations.
She’s now a graduate of UCLA and a proud mentor at International Dentist Central helping international dentists achieve their dream.
“To make your goal a reality you need to shift the way you think of admissions entirely” she says. “We come from different countries and by default approach things from our perspective, but the system here is completely different. Put energy in understanding that and looking at things from their point of view, not yours, and you’ll be ahead of most people”.
Kevin mastered the art of interviewing through serving on several interview committees during his years in California Polytechnic State University. For over 6 years he interviewed literally hundreds of prospective students and staff members.
“Each year we’d go through a lengthy and exhausting interview and selection process lasting several months” he says giving us a sneak peek of what the admissions committee goes through.
“It was challenging but I learned a great deal while interacting and interviewing candidates. Many people at interviews give answers they think interviewers want to hear, I can tell you that’s the biggest mistake you can make during the interview”
After being on the committee he landed every position he interviewed at - IBM, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin to name a few - which are all fortune 100 companies. This is a true testament to his interviewing skills.
