What are your general comments?

"When I arrived I was met by a secondary like application. Then our student host, Ben came to speak with us. He along with other students welcomed us and gave us honest opinions of what ever we asked. We sat in on a first year class and were also given a financial aid informational session. Next came a talk with the associate dean. Followed by a quick greeting by the Dean. At around 12 we had lunch which was followed by a tour of the school. As I said we were scheduled to start interviewing at 1:30 but no such luck. There was a lot of down time waiting to be called for the interview. As least it got rid of any nerves that I am have had. While we were waiting we had a few visitor, all nice people. I interviewed with a PhD.The first 5 mins or so were spent going over any weak point in my transcript, this was not fun but not painful either. He said he had to ask. Questions like why medicine, why howard, and question specific to some of my AMCAS followed. I had a lot of questions. He was VERY candid. We spoke about everything. My impression of howard was definately improved from this experience and the interviewer (an he wasn't just trying to sell the school to me)." Report Response
