What are your general comments?

"Everyone, its UCLA. The school has a tremendous reputation. So walking into the room with the interviewer I was serioulsy nervous, already began on a bad note. I tried to calm myself down and relaxed. Lots of smiling and thinking. The interviewer was not harsh adn yet he wasn't warm, he was neutral. The hospital is huge so make sure and give yourself enough time to get to your interview. The staff is great, but not outstanding. hey if you are sitting in the admissions office you have made it, if you screw the interview up then its your ass that messed it up so don't go and blame anythign else. Not to scare anyone but its up to you to stand your ground and represent. Know yourself very well otherwise don't even walk into teh place. Best of luck to everyone else. " Report Response
