What are your general comments?

"My interviewer specifically asked for me because of my Black/Hispanic heritage coupled with the huge disparity between my GPA and my MCAT score (hint: MCAT = 35). He was extremely supportive and understood my unique situation. After 30 minutes of having to explain myself, he saw I was getting stressed and broke up the tension with healthcare questions to keep the interview quote/unquote stress free. The entire interview was essentially me defending myself, which probably worked against me in some way." Report Response
