What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"I really felt like my interviewers were trying to trip me up. It did not feel like an opportunity for them to learn more about me. Instead I constantly felt like the interviewers were trying to challenge my worthiness to becoming a physician. And why are non-MDs interviewing candidates for medical school. It makes for a very awkward conversation about why you want to go to medical school instead of get a PhD!" Report Response
