What are your general comments?

"I was interviewing for a postbacc program called the GEMS program. It is geared towards improving your academic record so that you can become a more compettitive applicant. So obviosly any applicant to this program would not have the best grades and scores. I am sure that my file was somewhat decent considering the fact that I was accepted to two medical schools after this interview. But the dean of the program seemed to hate me off the bat. She was dry and terse with all of her responses and found a problem with every single one of my answers. She smirked to herself while I was responding and frequently cut me off. Two other students that interviewed with her that same day also experienced her rudeness." Report Response
