I also wish I knew that my interviewer would not have my file. I was glad I brought a copy of my AMCAS!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a good overall day. I liked the wireless campus and meeting a few students, they all seemed happy there. My faculty interview was at Hahnemann Hospital and was tough because I could not understand the guy. He had a thick foreign accent. He also did not have my info so we just talked about random things. He also watched the clock the whole time. My student interview was great, just a conversation. She wanted to know that I was a normal person. I was accepted about a month after my interview."
