"New facilities, front office. Friendly interviwers" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"There was a three lapse between my first and second schedule. I was within driving distance, but what about the person that is from out of town and just has to hang out for three hours? The questions were contrived. I was asked nothing new or insightful. The school is really more concerned with your GPA and MCAT than they like to lead on. All the hype you might hear about how important the extracirricular activities are is for the students that don't have outstanding numbers. Having an ethnic last name or some obscure degree (computer science or engineering) will defintely help." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Much of the anatomy lab is prosected, but there are real cadavers so that's cool." Report Response

What are your general comments?
