What are your general comments?

"This was a very good experience. I am blessed. I am a one on one person so the fact that they did not have any panel interviews that day was great.I got to talk to two assistant deans of admission.The interviews were suppose to last 35 mins but I got them to talk for an hour each.This was very important.I got a 24 on the MCAT so I wanted a chance to explain. One of them practically told me I was in!I was so excited. The school is beautiful and the students love the place. I can understand why.This is the first interview where I actually felt bad that the long day was over. I loved my fellow interviewees. Northwestern spends a lot of time on your personal statement and secondary.They want to make sure you can handle the pressure of PBL and the independant learning environment." Report Response
