What are your general comments?

"I had an unusual experience than most applicants at Ross. I went to medical school in the united states but was kicked out for failing too many classes, so I applied at Ross. The interview was pretty good, basic questions but it did not seem "low-stress" or a "walk in the park" as others on here have claimed. The interviewer did try to sell their school, but at the same time it did not seem that they would just take me. I had to really prove that I wanted to be a doctor and that I could pass classes at Ross since I had been kicked out once before. Unlike most people I was a bit stressed and nervous and felt like I rambled a bit too much. While she was very friendly, there was nothing in her demeanor that said "you're in" or anything like that. Ross, believe it or not, does have standards, and they are trying to revamp their school's image and reputation." Report Response
