What impressed you positively?

"Students came by between their classes to talk to me, students were very open about answering questions. Interviewers tried to reduce the stress level (I was pretty hyped up), were open about number of seats left and the process your file would go through, and responded quickly (about 14 days) about acceptance results. Gave us a book about osteo med." -Posted 06/17/2003 | Report Response

"It rained and rained." -Posted 06/17/2003 | Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"The nicest people go to this school: willing to answer any question and provide advice. A large portion of students are married, have kids, commute, non-traditional aps. They really do consider the entire package for admittance (references, statement, experiences). They look at your best (not last) MCAT score. For a good interview, you need to take control and provide the information, because they won't ask for it." -Posted 06/17/2003 | Report Response
