What impressed you positively?

"The interviewers were extremely friendly, and were very proud to have graduated from SGU. One of my interviewers was a recent graduate from the MD program, and the other interviewer was a veterinarian that graduated from SGU (strange I know). Overall, they were very receptive towards me, and I got lucky, because the MD had attended the same undergraduate school as me, so we had a great time talking about faculty etc. Both interviewers made me feel very comfortable and told me that they would recommend me for acceptance to the admissions board. yay! The admissions coordinator, Amanda Ryan, was also very friendly and she made all the interviewees feel very comfortable. " Report Response
