What are your general comments?

"I went there two days before the interview to get a chance to "experience" Lake Erie, hmmm yes well there really isn't anything there to experience. Sat around doing nothing for about two hours waiting to be interviewed. Others and I were asking questions about what the chances are of us getting in, how many people they interview vs. how many get in, and the representative wouldn't tell us anything. She just said she didn't have those numbers. Finally though, they started to show a video about the town, when suddenly I was called for my interview. The video was something I actually wanted to see, since I'm not from around there! The interview was fine, even though the three interviewers were totally unresponsive unitl they asked me about my MCAT scores. Lunch was horrible, I am a vegetarian/don't eat cheese, they had absolutely nothing I could eat! " Report Response
