What are your general comments?

"I was extremely calm at my interview. I had already been accepted and deposited at PCOM, but I had been waiting to hear from UMDNJ. During my interview I wasn't sure how I did and they asked if I had applied to other schools and I told them about PCOM. I thought perhaps that this would hurt me in the end. But I wanted to be honest. I am going to have a very hard time deciding where I will ultimately go." Report Response
