What are your general comments?

"We arrived at the library atrium where they had water, coffee, and some breakfast stuff to snack on before we were taken to the interview room. There were 12 total interviewees. An admissions rep provided an overview of the school and answered many questions. The dean came by to talk to us about choosing the school that's right for you. We spit into two groups: one went to a financial aid presentation followed by a campus tour, while the other group waited to be interviewed. They gave out cool little stress balls shaped like hearts to help us keep our cool. The interviews weren't too bad: the panel consisted of a faculty member, a local physician, and a med student. They have your resume portion of your app, but they have no access to your GPA or MCAT scores. The groups switched, we were served lunch and then left. It was a pretty cool experience overall" Report Response
