"To explain a discrepancy between my MCAT score (high) and my GPA (acceptable, but nothing special). This was the first person to ask me that out of three different schools and 8 interviewers, and somewhat hard because I do not personally see a discrepancy in my stats!" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Looked at this website, skimmed cnn.com/health..." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The Women's and Children's Hospital makes South seem like the place you want to be if you are interested in pursuing a career in a related field." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"We were only shown the Women's and Children's Hospital... probably because it is South's biggest bragging right, but it kind of made me wonder about all the other hospitals... are they that bad? In addition, the biomedical sciences building on campus- where your spend your life for first and second year- is old, outdated, and a horrible place to spend two years of your life. The library isn't anything to write home about either." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That South uses a 1-10 rating system for applicants; I really don't see too much room for anything but applicants' stats to make or break them. Entirely too unfair, in my mind! There's more to people than numbers!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"All in all... not bad. But not great either. I'll take it if it's the only place I get in though- anywhere is better than nowhere!" Report Response
