What impressed you positively?

"facilities seemed nice, they are in the process of adding a new building which looks like it is going to be impressive, everyone was kind and encouraging" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"no tour was given as a part of the interview day, however, the school does seem to be a little more spread out than some which would probably make it difficult to have a fairly informative tour. also, even though i got a 24 on the MCAT, i could tell one interviewer thought that it would be a problem when she presented to the admissions committee. I'm sorry, if someone as a 3.94 overall gpa and a 3.89 science gpa,can the MCAT maybe not be taken as seriously, should i really have been wait listed" Report Response
