What are your general comments?

"This is my 3rd time applying to Brody so I was pretty familiar with the staff and the facilities. This year they served us lunch too (which is surprisingly good) :) Both interviews are closed file and they are basically looking to get to know you. You will spend the majority of your time discussing your experiences and how they relate to medicine. Normally they ask me what I am going to do if I am not accepted. This year they never asked me that, rather they asked why I was so tenacious in my pursuit of a medical career. The majority of the class are reapplicants so I felt very good about my interviews this time around. Both people I interviewed with were quality individuals and I never once felt uncomfortable. This is a great school. Many people say that there is nothing to do in Greenville but it's really just like Wilmington 5 years ago. In conclusion, compared to other schools you'll interview at, you'll find the most comfortable interview environment here." Report Response
