What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a gr8 experience. The interview was really laid back and comfortable. The interviewers did not have my GPA and MCAT scores, They only had my resume, PS and secondary essay, so be thorough on those. The only thing was there was a huge window overlooking a parking lot behind the interviewers and cars kept coming in and out of ther, which was really distratcing for me. Also it is helpful to know that they ask a lot of ethical Q's so prepare for that" Report Response
