What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview, so I was a bit nervous. Overall, though, I think it went pretty well. The tourguide wasn't particularly enthusiastic, but she was informative. I really liked the admissions staff that gave presentations, etc. Dr. Wise (sp?) was great, kept reminding us that we already had the grades and MCAT scores, that they already knew we were smart enough, they just wanted to know if we were a good fit for the school now. They pull people out of the large group presentations for the individual interviews, which is distracting, in addition to meaning that some applicants didn't get the important information on financial aid and such. But it was a positive experience overall. Every single question really is already listed on SDN. So read up, have examples, and you'll be fine!" Report Response
