What are your general comments?

"It was fabulous. Dr. Haight was phenomonal- candid, kind, informative, instructive, and funny. He was incredibly forthcoming about our chances of getting in. They interview 20 people per week and the admissions committee meets every two weeks to vote on 40 candidates at a time. Based on the # of seats they have, up until around winter break, Dr. Haight is able to say ''you can accept all 40 candidates'' (which never happens.) But soon after winter break, he has to start rationing seats and has to tell the admissions committee ''of the 40 folks you interviewed, we can only accept two.'' So try to get in early! Check out the ''interview cancellation'' thread in the Premedical Forum. If you see an earlier slot at a school where you have an interview, call the school and take it. " Report Response
