What are your general comments?

"I had two interviewers, one an experienced member of the adcom, and the other was a newbie who was learning how to conduct interviews. The second interviewer basically observed the whole time, saying very little. The Jefferson admissions office said that this situation was the exception to the rule, however- most interviews will be one on one. Overall, it was pretty low stress... i was asked stuff pretty much right off my application... i would suggest that people try to work in some stuff that doesnt show up on the app. though, just to add another dimension to your file. Also, come prepared with questions, my interviewer really seemed to want to help me get to know the school." Report Response
