What are your general comments?

"I got into medical school with a mediocre science GPA (3.5) and a lousy MCAT score (27). I can only imagine that my admittance was because of good life experiences, good recommendations, and good interviews. The KEY to good interviews is to be interested in your interviewers!! People love to answer questions and they love if you are curious about them, so show that you want to know about them and about the school, without sounding phony (i.e. if you're really not interested, don't bother asking)" Report Response
