The second interviewer was a third year med student... a wonderful guy." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"First, you are assigned a Peer advisor that gives you advice on the interview process as well as any information you want on the school. Then you travel to UNLV for the first interview with a non-medical professor... specifically picked among the admissions commitee to cater to your undergraduate degree (Sociologist for Behaviroal sciences students). Then you go to the LV-Medical school, a small bldg where you meet up with your second interviewer, a third year medical student (this student gives you an interview, but has no decision in the final say as does the first interviewer)."
