What are your general comments?

"One of my interviewers had not read my file before the interview and spent most of our time going over the basic facts from my AMCAS. One of my interviews was a 25 minute walk from the admissions office, and some had to travel by cab to their interviews. However, they provide you with good (written!) directions and cab vouchers if needed. There is quite a bit of down time during the interview day, so be prepared to explore campus on your own. As for the actual day, you arrive at 8 and can be there until 6 pm at the latest. They provide breakfast and lunch. " -Posted 11/15/2005 | Report Response
