What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Usually at the end they ask you if you have any questions for them. Make sure you come up with a good question interesting question about the school that you can't answer just by looking at their website. Going by the advice of some on sdn, i decided to ask "what do you think I should work on if I dont get in?" Dont do this! She seemed a bit put off by the question since I had pretty high gpa and mcat was a couple of standard deviations above the school avg. She gave me a speech about how I should be more confident .Fortunately, she called me a couple of weeks after, and was pleased to tell me i got in. Good luck. If you have an interview at this school, and you are in state you have a very high chance of getting in. I honestly haven't heard of any in-staters who didn't atleast get in off the wait list after interviewing." Report Response
