What are your general comments?

"I enjoyed interviewing here. Dr. Wasserman interviewed me as well...and he seemed like an overall nice guy. He didn't really make the interview stressful, he just asked me the "get to know you" type questions. Although, he is very frank about the shortcomings of the school...be aware that since the school is Catholic affiliated, they do not teach abortion, birth control, etc. However, I was told that interested students may learn how to conduct abortions in Planned Parenthood. I wish that the interviewer had received the personal essay beforehand, so that he wouldn't have had to waste time reading it while I was sitting in front of him. I think that the person who wrote the former post perhaps didn't understand Dr. Wasserman's sense of humor..or perhaps caught him on a bad day. Its always best to take everything that interviewers say with a grain of salt. Don't let them bog you down! Be confident! You know how hard you've worked to get to where you are now and hopefully, it'll come across in the interview. Anyway, the interview day itself was low-stress and the admissions people are very friendly! Relax and good luck. " Report Response
