What are your general comments?

"The day is long. Get plenty of sleep the night before otherwise it will drag, especially in Temple. The interview day starts at 7:00am with a quick introduction, a 1st and 2nd year student panel, then it's tours and interviews followed by a financial aid presentation. You will be in College Station from 7-10:30, and then drive to Temple and have lunch starting at noon. Filo gives a great presentation aout the school and its philopsophy, then there's the tours of Scott & White and another interview. Some people were able to leave at 4:00pm others had to remain until 5:30pm. My first interviewer was exptremely nice and I was able to build a good rapport with him, howeve rin the afternoon, the interviewer was the complete opposite, I felt like every answer I gave the interviewer wasn't satisfied with it. A word of warning in the interviews...be prepared to defend your application. Any deficiencies will more than likely be addressed in one or both interviews. Be able to explain low MCAT scores, dropped classes, low GPR, etc. It seemed to happen to several people. " Report Response
