What are your general comments?

"A group of 12 candidates met in the Admissions office. They started on time ( 9:30). There was good strong coffee, juice, and muffins in the office ( these were welcomed as there was no lunch served). There was a brief orientation by an Admissions Specialist. A packet was handed to each of us which had a brochure, an interviewer evaluation form, and two candidate review sheets for our interviewers ; we were told to put our name and date on these before giving them to the interviewers. At the top of the sheet are instructions telling the reviewer to keep the candidate's recommendations, activities, and experience in mind when ranking ( these sheets will give you an idea of how we would be evaluated so be sure to look at them- three categories are rated: poise, problem solving ability, and other; all three are ranked 1 - 5). These three categories will be added up and totaled at the bottom of the sheet. The first interviewer was an M4 who used my supplemental application and accompanying essay. She was very nice and pretty laid back. The interviewer was very engaging and informal the whole time; she was also helpful with my list of questions. Between interviews, the Admissions Specialist held many question and answer sessions for the candidates that were waiting in the office. The second interviewer was an MD that taught at CMS. He was kind and thorough. This interviewer covered most of my AMCAS thoughtfully; he clearly had read the document. He also posed additional questions about my personal life, motives, and future plans. A brief tour came next which included the new Rosalind Franklin Biochemical dept, anatomy lab, realistic practice clinical rooms, workout room, cafeteria/ student union, and the twin-pod/ auditorium area. Half of the facilities are only 2 years old. There are also brand new dormitories near the school which we did not tour. " Report Response
