What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Our interviewers were hostile and condescending. There continually took turns asking the 6 of us and asked about weaknesses in our application. (Nothing positive- ex: explain your research/volunteer work/shadowing experience) -which is what I had at all the other schools. The group interview panel format was a very negative experience. It was extremely uncomfortable sharing personal information about our application in front of the other interviewers who we just met. For example, one guy in our group had a poor GPA, and each of the 3 interviewers went through and asked in a different way why he had a poor gpa/grade in class. It made the whole group uncomfortable. The interview we all couldn't believe what a high tension/stressful situation it was. The worst part of the whole day was that we had to sit through a 45 min presentation on the DO/MPH program at the beginning--but were offered LITTLE to NO information about the DO program/curriculum/clerkships that we were applying for! Not to mention the location and Vallejo is horrible- I am definitely not taking my acceptance " Report Response
