What are your general comments?

"For starters, I am not the typical medical school applicant. I come from a pretty rough background but I have decent grades and a pretty good MCAT score. I really felt out of my league because I was interviewing with people from MIT and the ivy league. However, what I found was that the overall interview process at WFU was very laid back and inviting. I was a nervous wreck and my interviewers made a point of easing the atmosphere. The conversations during my interviews were very open and non-confrontational, while still focusing on specific questions. They really wanted to get to know me as a person. My best advice to anyone is to be yourself, answer questions as honestly as possible. Oh yeah, show some excitement about getting an opportunity to go to medical school. " Report Response
