What are your general comments?

"It was really nice. Everyone was laid back. Right off the bat, my first interviewer asked me what my age/MCAT/gpa are. That kind of surprised me because the interviewers are supposed to be discouraged from asking that kind of information. But it turned out alright. Be ready to have questions because it seemed like they expected me to have tons and tons to ask them. Also..they never even touched on financial aid/costs, which was a bit odd." Report Response
