What are your general comments?

"I was interviewed by a member of the admissions commitee, many others were interviewed by doctors or professors. The interview was pretty standard but lasted a while, over an hour. I don't remember too many actual questions being asked, but just a long conversation about what I'm doing with my life, the kind of doctor I want to be, etc. I think they're just trying to get a feel for who you are as a person. Also she answered a lot of questions for me concerning the University, the student body, and the St. Louis area. Definitely go to the pizza party the night beforehand, it's a great opportunity to meet tons of current students and become nervous about your fellow impressive candidates. " Report Response
