What are your general comments?

"Semi-open file. Interviewers had my CV, personal statement (which I was surprised about!) and secondary. No transcripts, MCAT scores. Know your application very well and think of things to say about your extracurriculars that aren't on it that are unique to you. My interviewers were very laid back and all seemed to really want to be there and get to know me better. If your tourguide offers their email address, take it! Mine was a student and was very nice- she suggested good apartments to live in, moving options, etc. " Report Response
