I was also impressed at how many faculty members had participated in health care outreach ops in developing nations. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, the best by far. I think the school did such a great job of pairing me with interviewers who were in fields that I would like to explore. I was impressed at how well they knew my application. One interviewer is on the adcom, so his questions were focused on Why medicine and the like. He tried to clarify some parts of my application, but it flowed, and there weren't any awkward moments. The second interview was bit more relaxed, tried to get to know me as a person.
