What are your general comments?

"This was a very easy, laid back friendly interview. The Dean of Admissions told us out right that we wouldn't be asked questions on abortion, stem cell research, or cloning. They ask alot about leadership and want to know that you have tested your desire to become a doc. Plus they like to know that you know what your getting yourself in to. The place takes all feed back very seriously. But really how do they evaluate candidates if their interviews are so nicey-nice? Also the interviewers don't know your grades or MCAT score. They say this helps prevent bias." Report Response
