What impressed you positively?

"I can't stress enough how much I enjoyed this interview. The doctors that interviewed me were both extremely animated and compassionate people. They were both really interested in who I was and what makes me tick as a person. It felt pretty good also to have them tell me they hoped I would come to IU! It was very nice to feel that they were trying to sell me on the school." Report Response

"I wish I had known that it would be me and two interviewers at the same time... but this didn't faze me." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I didn't go through the whole "interview day" since I am an IU student (although I go to school in Bloomington), so I just came up for the actual interview. Coming into it, I wasn't too excited... this is my state school, and I know that all it takes is a 22 on the MCAT and in-state status to qualify for an interview. But the guys who interviewed me were fantastic! I just found out a couple of days ago that I got into IU, and I've accepted my spot (to hold the place), but I am not sure if I will go.
