What are your general comments?

"The interviewer told me that with my grades and MCAT scores (3.6 and 30R) I should take a Kaplan course and prepare to retake the MCAT and reapply next year. He seemed to think it unlikely that I would get in at any school that I've applied to. I was confused because I thought they screened applications before offering interviews. I didn't feel that I really had the opportunity to make a case for myself in spite of his obvious concerns about me, because he got paged <10min into the interview and had to leave. After the interview, I talked to the admissions people about my experience, and they were very helpful and accomodating. They arranged a second interview for me with anothter faculty member, and it was much better. Still my overall impression of the program fell way below my expectations." Report Response
