What impressed you positively?

"Can't beat the tuition! My student tour guide was very informative and friendly. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My second interviewer. She really just didn't seem interested at all in my being there. Anything I said that had kind of lead to conversation in over interviews she pretty much ignored and just threw out the next question. Not conversational at all." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The say the interviews are closed file, but the first question asked by both of my interviewers was what's your MCAT score and your GPA. Then one asked me to list my honors and awards. Kind of defeats the purpose of closed file interviews. Everyone says MCG interviews are supposed to be quite relaxed but that was not my experience anyway." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Nothing went really awful but I wouldn't say it felt that great either. The administration that we met and ate lunch with were very friendly as was the student tour guide. But other than her, you don't get to talk to any other students, so I recommend doing student hosting just to get another perspective on the school. I really think I just hit on tough interviewers b/c everyone else seemed very happy with theirs. You can't take any one experience as representative of what you'll face." Report Response
