What are your general comments?

"I was interviewed by Dr. Duoung (sp). He is a very nice anatomist. I was an in-state applicant and was invited for an interview despite my low MCAT. I was told flat out that it would probably be detrimental to my acceptance. I was told this in a very tactful and nice way. He said he would still present and argue my case with the admissions committee. I appreciated the honesty and the professionalism offered to me. Everything else on my application seemed A OK. In a way, it makes me wonder why they invite candidates who are in-state with low MCATs for interviews if they really don't stand a chance in being accepted based upon the MCAT alone--unless it some agreement b/w the state for funding. Either way, may the best man or woman win and if it comes down to the MCAT, guess I'm out. :) I would still have to be fair and honest to say, that IU is a great school and the admission staff is very nice and welcoming."
