What are your general comments?

"I definitely stressed over this a lot more than I should have, but I guess that's ok because if I hadn't, I wouldn't have been as prepared. I like that they try to sell you the school too, not just have you sell yourself. It was also fun to talk to the other interviewees, and four of them were actually from my college. The questions were definitely manageable. And during lunch, you could sit and talk to med students, which was great. One thing that surprised me is that no one asked me why I wanted to be a doctor, and I was definitely expecting that. One of the reviewers also showed me the evaluation sheet and said he only had access to my essays and PS. So I don't think they see your grades or scores. " Report Response
