What are your general comments?

"The interview was by far the best one I attended. The reason I had such a great experience was the motivation that Dr. Haight gave us, the students that interviewed with me. I am usually around a bunch of uptight people but these people rocked. It made the panel/The"Apprentice" type interview very comfortable. I hope all of us get into medical school together because this group was made up of selfless and non-judgemental people, the same type of people that deserve to be doctors. Dr. Haight is a great person and also encourages staying in shape which is very important to me. Overall I loved it and hope to get in very soon. Also the interviewers were very easy to talk to and not at one point did I feel intimidated." Report Response
