Default Phone interviews

I got a phone interview....

How does that one go?
Should I actually prepare intensively for that? It's just 10-15 minutes. What are they going to look for in that span of time?
Thanks guys!

I agree I'd like to hear answer to your question too!

Ive received a recognition MSG form a program and they said, if the program is interested they'll set up a phone interview late November and they'll be sending out interview invitation early December! Id want to be prepared for that but cant seem to figure out what to expect. They said "it'll be a discussion of general aspects of the application". That sounds vague for me and thus would like to hear an answer from someone with previous experience

heyy, i had a phone interview. the questions were pretty much the same that you expect for face 2 face ones.. "tell me about yourself.. what do you liek about our program... why this field of medicine etc etc"
id say prepare for it just as you would a face to face IV. good luck!
