What are your general comments?

"One faculty interviewer came in twenty minutes late, hadn't even opened up my file, nor did she know anything about the admissions process. She had just moved to Utah and she hadn't even heard of Utah State University. The second interviewer was a nice 4th year student. Both kept asking me about other med schools I was applying to and why in the world I would want to attend those schools rather than the U. I thought it was very irrelevant." Report Response
