What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The interviewer doesn't see your mcat score unless someone has written about it in the letters...this is so that they dont get an impression about you based on it --it already counts as one part of their formula and they don't want it "leaking" over to the interview score as well." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Day started with donuts and coffee--I'm glad I stopped to get a cappucino first because not many people touched the food and I wouldn't have wanted to be the only one. Then we listened to how we should do research--this sort of convinced me--it's important, you guys!...Then I had an hour off...Then a tour led by a student in the really really really hot sun...And she talked pretty quietly too...Then lunch at 12...Then my interview at 1...People who had interviews at 10 or 11 got to leave earlier than me: No fair! Also, my interview seemed short! It was a bit of a walk away and I was gone and back in 45 minutes...Is this bad, I don't know? ;) Also funny was when the interviewer said "I hope you applied to other schools"....he didn't mean it like THAT...but still!"
