"McGill has too many students for its limited class space; small group sizes are large (15+); there are lots of younger students because of the MedP program." -Posted 02/19/2005 | Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, very positive experience. The interviewers just want to get to know you, get a sense of who you are, where you come from and why you are interested in medicine. It was much more conversational than at other schools because the interviewers weren't taking notes, and most questions were based on my previous responses. McGill would be a wonderful place to be." -Posted 02/19/2005 | Report Response
