What are your general comments?

"I think that this is a great school. Do not listen to some people on this site that think they know what the admissions committee wants to hear. Frankly, I am extremely upset that anyone would try to give such bad advice. I suggest you be honest!!! If you want to be a surgeon, do not hide it. Just because this school is known for its primary care physicians, does not mean they won't accept you because you don't want to be one. During my interview, I told the complete truth. I did not try to give answers I thought they wanted to hear. I gave answers that reflected my understanding and beliefs. Also for the record, I have been accepted and will attend this school in the Fall. So honesty does seem to be the best policy. P.S. I loved the school and do not believe this school should be considered a backup. It is insulting and frankly if that is your opinion, then perhaps you should go somewhere else. I have a high GPA and MCAT and I'm going. " Report Response
