"No merit scholarships for out-of-state students. Student research participation seems to be lacking." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had the exact same interview 3 times in a row, but with 3 different doctors... It seems like they didn't discuss beforehand what types of questions they were going to ask. I was quite literally asked the exact same questions by all 3 of my interviewers. It was frustrating, because I ended up having to talk about similar things in each one, and I don't think I was able to portray a lot about myself that I would have liked to." Report Response
