What are your general comments?

"GREAT! I really only applied there because I wanted to be in the midwest (i'm from Illinois), but everybody's attitudes were great and made me feel like, "Wow, this place is nice." I am thinking about surgery and didn't feel any pressure to say "I want to be a family practitioner." I want to re-iterate how really solid of a school this is. My MCATs and GPA were quite strong, and i went to a fairly prestigious undergrad (Vanderbilt) and I am not considering Mizzou as a backup. After the interview, it's high on my list." Report Response
