What impressed you positively?

"the curriculum" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"the interview itself. I felt like the interviewer didn't make an effort to get to know me as a person and didn't seem very interested in what I had to say. On top of this, they told me that I didn't have a good chance because my MCAT and GPA aren't that high. This bothered me because 1) they could have read this on my application before they invited me to the interview, 2) they said during the orientation that "they aren't all about numbers" so this sounded hypocritical. I think they might have just been looking for a justification, so be ready to defend your application. A friend of mine had to explain all of the B's on his transcript." Report Response
