"The school had the attitude of "we're the only one in the state, so YOU better show us why we should pick you." Plus, as stated in the previous posts, it IS who you know and what your racial background is." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The adcom is more "numbers based" than they say they are. It's all about being "diverse" rather than having the most qualified students enter." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interviews went well overall, just the usual questions given get old. I would like future interviewers to get to know their applicants better rather than trying to stump them on useless ethical questions. (Anyone can prepare for that just like the MCAT) This school so desperately wants to be in the ranks with the top dogs, they will have perfectly good applicants reapply (sometimes up to 5 times I've heard) just to see if they REALLY want to be a physician."
