What are your general comments?

"As other people will tell you, it is awesome to get to a school and the Admissions Administrator (Lenoa) knowns your first and last name and is well acquanted with your application. My two interviews went quite well. My first was with an MD in pathology who asked logical and direct questions and went out of his way to make sure he understood me. My other interviewer, also an MD, is involved in evangelical work and he gave me a strong sense of the school's values and mission. He was direct about telling me he thought I was a strong candidate. I came back from California with a positive impression about Loma Linda and am very happy about the way things are done there." Report Response
