What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"that i really needed to pick up more decongestant meds. and that library interviews were conducted in tiny study rooms right next to each other where you could see the interviewer/the interviewer could see you through the window." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i was really turned off by the medical school building for reasons listed above. the sit-in-the-lecture-hall-and-listen sessions were uber boring (i actually nodded off - jet lag??) and, for a school with this kind of reputation, they did not present themselves as such. for example, they spent way too long on the senior video. even though that's something i would enjoy doing, they should have picked only the very best parts. all the other activities (tour, lunch, talking with med students) were great."
