"The interviewers have partial access to your file-they see your essays and expereinces, but don't know your grades." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, and I feel much more relaxed about the rest of them now. The interviewers (one a med student, the other a physician) were low-pressure and really seemed interested in getting to know me. Both asked question directly from my essays, so know those inside out and be ready to explain even a single sentence. Although I think they have a great program, they didn't really show us anything exciting. I don't have a frame of reference yet, so I'm not sure how they might have made the day more interesting. It was a really long day (8-3), so bring a snack for the morning." Report Response
