What impressed you negatively?

"They tried to make you nervous before the interviews...telling us how they go about selecting people.

Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

What are your general comments?

"There were two interviews. The first one was pretty straightforward...asking questions form my AMCAS essay and experiences. KNOW YOUR AMCAS APPLICATION FOR THIS INTERVIEW!!!! The second one was a bit more difficult, the guy kept on screwing up my research projects and mixing up my experiences with someone elses. That didn't feel very good." Report Response
