What are your general comments?

"You start the day off listening to the administrator give a little talk about the interview process and the school. He is pretty funny and kinda puts on a comedy show. Then the Dean gives a talk. We have 2 interviews which last about 30 minutes each. The interviewers have only read your essays-they do not know your GPA/MCAT scores. They want to know if you have a funky score, so tell them before they find out when you aren't there to defend yourself!" Report Response
