What are your general comments?

"Overall, the majority of people say this is a relaxing interview. For me, it wasn't that way. First, my first interviewer was late. Then he seemed more interested in making me feel stupid than getting to know me. I have had interviews at much higher ranked medical institutions and my MCAT score was never mentioned. They each have a sheet and write things down which makes the conversation seem forced and less open-ended. Also, Wright State prides community service on its website but that same interviewer stated, ''You won't have time for community service, '' in reply to my inquiry about service opportunities. Granted the facilities are nice and the students have great teamwork, but my interviewer just must have not liked me. After my experience I still like Wright State thanks to a friendly tour guide but sadly, I don't think the interviewer gave a positive impression of the school. I have heard some students say that they have had awesome interviewers, and the impression you get of the school really comes down to interviewer. " Report Response
