What are your general comments?

"The interview was a positive experience. I think they have it down to a science, and Dr. Haight's experience with admissions and premedical students resounds while he is casually talking with the group. He also puts any uneasiness to rest, answering questions, etc. The interview itself was good. I was asked more questions than I expected to be asked (going from previous feedback here). I thought each candidate was given a reasonable and equal amount of time for answering questions. " Report Response
