What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"One always reads posts, "I was not asked a single question," well this sums up my experience. The DPM looked over my application and said ooh this is nice, and yes this is also very nice. I had to mention I had a low MCAT score myself (which I should not have but the doctor said it's okay since I improved), I chipped in whenever I could but no question was asked. At the end the DPM asked if I had any questions. So be prepared to ask some questions.." Report Response | I was asked this question too

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"To be a bit more professional. I never received an interview offer e-mail, I had to call the school to confirm if they had received my application, upon which I was told that I had been sent an interview invite. Also the interview environment was too informal, there were personal stories being shared instead of discussing the stats of the school, the residency placements etc. I think the school has an EXCELLENT building and clinic but the one major thing stopping me from considering the school is the admission staff. There was no student interviewer, there was no student tour guide. Everything was done by the admission staff and it seemed more like they were trying to sell the school than why you should genuinely go to the school" Report Response
