What are your general comments?

"It was okay. I could have done without the condescending attitude of the director of admissions. What some of the other posters said is true. A lot of white applicants were turned down without an interview because of their MCAT score.Many of these were my classmates and many are excellent students otherwise. I asked if this was true to the student conducting the tour. They told me that they are on the admissions committee and that the adcom will not interview white applicants with low scores, but will interview any minority applicant that applies. Talk about reverse discrimination! I don't want to go to school in that kind of environment. If they discriminate on that, what else do they discriminate on? That is something to think about. I am afraid that the school will be hit with a reverse discrimination suit in the future and that it will not bode well with residency directors later on. I chose UK. " Report Response
