What are your general comments?

"There are two interviews. The alpha interview (open file, but no MCAT and GPA) consisted of a series of questions about myself. The beta interview (closed file) is supposed to push you past your limits, and to determine if you are a compassionate human being. My beta interview involved three ethical scenarios. I heard from other students that they had no ethical questions in their beta interview." -Posted 12/22/2008 | Report Response
