What are your general comments?

"I arrived at WSU about 1/2 hour before my scheduled interview time. I was greeted kindly by the admissions staff and given some materials to read over until the interview started. My interviewer arrived on time and directed me to an office within the admissions office. She was an internal medicine physician from a local hospital. The interview was more like a conversation than an actual interview. We discussed my research, what I did, what I like about it, etc. We discussed a few of my previous classes. She asked me which classes I found most difficult and asked me to elaborate on one class that I withdrew from (Why I had a W on my transcript). She also asked me how I did in high school, if I had considered any career other than medicine, and asked me to briefly elaborate on one of my secondary essays. Finally she asked my what I would like her to tell the admissions committe about me. Following the interview I had about two hours until the tour started. I got some coffee and sat in on a first year biochemistry lecture. Around noon we took a brief tour of the medical school and the surrounding hospitals and were treated to lunch at the cafeteria. The student tour leaders were very friendly and eager to answer all of our questions. My overall experience was very pleasant. Everyone at WSU was extremely nice and helpful. " Report Response
