What impressed you negatively?

"I showed up at the office about ten minutes before my scheduled time and was told that I didn't have an interview that day. I stood around the office for about 10 minutes trying to get someone to help me. Finally, someone asked me why I was there; when I again said I had an interview, I got shuffled around for another 5 minutes or so. All the while, they maintain that I don't have an interview that day. Finally, someone apologized, said that I did in fact have an interview, and had me sit down to wait. Good thing the interviewer was late, or else I might have missed part of my interview." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was pretty laid back and friendly. She said she hadn't gone through my application with a fine-toothed comb. Later, she revealed that she didn't know my MCAT score, my GPA, my undergraduate institution, or very much that I'd written in my AMCAS at all." Report Response
