"I was interviwed by Dr. McCandless, professor of pharmacology, and Anne Wilson, who works in Alumni Relations. Everyone was interviewed by a PhD and either a DO or a staff member. It was not intimidating, and they get you very relaxed with an introductory speech, tour, lunch, and waiting in the student lounge before a 1st year takes you to your interview. I was notified of acceptance on 11/4/04!" Report Response
