What are your general comments?

"The interviews themselves were very laid back. One with a student, and one with faculty. They had a copy of my AMCAS, but the grades and MCAT scores were blacked out.

If you're coming to Madison to interview, please don't get too stressed, I realize now that I shouldn't have." Report Response
