What are your general comments?

"My interview experience at MUSC was terrific. All 3 interviews were very conversational based and laid back. The doctors made it a point to put you at ease and basically just get to know you as a person. Most of my questions stemmed from the flow of the conversation. However, some applicant's interviews were 100% ethical Q's. There was a lot of down time so bring the newspaper, magazine, or something for you to do. The ad com is very pro-active with the admissions process. They do not want to deny anyone at that point. The whole admissions process is based on a points system, it is set up so that you can only gain points, not lose them. They just reduced the weight of the interviews from 50% to 25%. Overall, it was an enjoyable day. " Report Response
