What are your general comments?

"I thought that the interviews went well. In my second interview i interviewed with a regular doctor that had patients. During the interview a nurse brought in xrays to look at, we visited a patient and just got to know each other, it was a great time. They are very low stress interviews. They have an alpha and a beta interview, the alpha is for an academic review and the beta doesn't even have your grades or MCAT score, they are there to get to know you." Report Response
