What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"All they have is your personal statement and they said that the rest of the AMCAs had been prescreened. (ie. they assume everyone is equal at the interview point). " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was pretty laid back and lunch was decent. Pretty painless interview, mostly questions from my personal statement and some how I would react questions. So know your personal statement well and know what parts of it you can use to bring out your characteristics. The overview of the school they give answered alot of my questions as well. They also give you a catalog that tells all about the school when you get there. If you interview later in the day there is a decent amount of downtime. " Report Response
