What impressed you negatively?

"I had a morning interview, so the day went well for me on the whole, but the afternoon was a bit disorganized (ie we had to remind the admissions director to set us up with a fin aid talk so we could leave). But the admissions staff was really friendly." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the Yale interview (esp my first one) would be so structured. Though he was friendly and made it relatively conversational, there was a three page list of questions he went through, which was very unlike most of my other interviews." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I had the morning session, so the day began with a mini-orientation by Mr. Silverman. I then had my two interviews. The first was with a faculty member and was more structured than I expected (see below). The second was with a student and was less structured but went into lots of detail about me and my AMCAS. We then had a little talk by a former dean, lunch with really cool med students, and the tour. Afterwards, we had an impromptu financial aid session and then headed home." Report Response
