What impressed you negatively?

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That AMCAS calculated my GPA wrong!! I found out during the interview that it's significantly lower than what's on my transcript and what they had previously verified it to be. And now I have to go through the hell of dealing with AMCAS at the last second. Maybe that's why I didn't get interview invites to some of my favorite schools... :(" Report Response
