What are your general comments?

"I had two interviews, one with a pathology professor and one with a student. I was told that both interviews would be weighted equally. The prof interview did not go as well as I hoped, he really grilled me on the background to some of my research and I couldn't answer some of his questions. The student interview went really, really well. The student had my AMCAS memorized and we just had a conversation about my activities and life at Harvard. " -Posted 11/05/2006 | Report Response
