What impressed you negatively?

"You arrive at the admissions office and they send you off to your interviewer by yourself. I had a 10 min walk, but some people had to take shuttle buses to nearby hospitals. This was all before the tour. Also, the school adheres to the Jewish Sabbath and the holidays, although many of the students are not Jewish. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a pretty standard interview. I think they match you up with specific interviewers. My interviewer was a Chinese American female (like myself) while others had Jewish males (like themselves.) She asked me about my research and some of the things I wrote about in my essay. Halfway through, she asked me if there were any questions I wanted to ask her and that was basically it.
