What are your general comments?

"The day started off well. It seemed well organized. We were split into two groups in which one went on a tour of the medical school and the other group was interviewed. I was the last person to be interviewed which was nervewracking - but the first thing that was told to me once I was in the interview room was that everyone that was invited for an interview is qualified, the point of the interview is to get to know me so that they can be an advocate for me for admissions. This helped to relax me a lot. The interviewers were friendly and didn't really ask me anything too hard or unexpected, except the question about New Orleans. I didn't feel like I was being grilled or anything. The students that I met were nice and very very honest and truthful about what they like and dislike." Report Response
