What impressed you positively?

"The fact that Dominica doesn't have many much of night life...they strive to keep your head in the game" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I could tell that the number of applicants are increasing by the year...so it seemed to be like they have become carefree or almost careless...the admissions officer that interviews is just a medium through which the admissions committee knows you...plus you can tell off the bat that the person has interviewed so many people...that has almost become a boring routine for him...my interviewer definitely made me feel this way" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The fact that you can't really ride a bike or have your own means of transportation unless it is a car on the island...my interviewer told me that the roads are filled w/ ditches and the driving over there is chaotic...he said that unless i get a car, i should rely on the transportation that the university provides" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Know your transcript and MCAT scores well especially for those who think they are on the chopping when it comes to their grades and scores...have an honest explanation about why they aren't really great...trust me, i was honest in saying that biochem was really really hard for me...i said that i tried my best and apparently my best was a C and he took that as an answer...because they do ask why you got low grades in particular classes...also they look upon the fact that you retook a class and aced really really positively...so if you can do that to kind of void out the C's you have in your transcript...it would looked upon as a very good thing" Report Response
