What are your general comments?

"My interview was in my state, 30 min away, by a former SGU grad. First 10 min is the essay, which is really easy (what experience influenced your adult life? describe three characteristics a physician should possess. a person who has influenced you.) Then he let me know that there's a list of questions required by SGU (which were all pretty basic). The rest was casual conversation. If you had academic difficulty in the past, obviously this question will definitely be asked right away." Report Response
