What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Of course no 2 interviewers are exactly the same, but I was told by more than 2 people who had just interviewed to REALLY know your secondary application, including exact dates etc. UCSD is where I want to attend Med School so I put much effort into the preparation. The extra time spent preparing and the added stress this added were COMPLETELY not needed. And it actually threw me a bit when I was in the interviews, and they were only conversational, not like I was expecting nor like any other interviews I had been on." Report Response
