What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Well, to twist the question a little: I wish I knew that Western was going to end up being the school where I do my MD. During interview time, I had two schools I had rather gone to, but only AFTER I got acceptances at those two schools did I suddenly decide I wanted Western the most afterall!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Western wasn't my first choice at the time of the interview and I felt very confident about my chances at two other schools. As a result, I was very relaxed. I even played air guitar and sang during my UWO interview. The panel liked that apparently.... I guess the secret is, and always will be, 'just be yourself'. The air guitar thing was just something I would have done in most conversations if I was asked the same questions the interviewers asked. I didn't think it right to act like some other person so I just did what I would have normally done, and I'm glad that was the message that was conveyed." Report Response
