What are your general comments?

"Very relaxed. I just basically had a conversation with my interviewers. The interviewers have access to your secondary file but NOT your AACOMAS. So they have your resume but not your GPA/MCAT. This means you won't get any questions about lapses in grades or poor MCAT scores. Also, CCOM has a refund policy on your deposit to hold your seat should you choose to go to school somewhere else."
