What are your general comments?

"My PI is one of the interviewers for the dental school, so he gave me a heads-up on what to expect. He said it would be pretty easy and chill, and that most people they interview normally get accepted (so long as they do not do anything stupid. He interviewed this one kid a few years back who called him by his first name! that kid did not get in). The essay portion is relatively easy. There's nothing you can do to prepare for it. I was told that they only want to see if you can actually put coherent thoughts together and that you did not pay someone else to write your personal statement. I really hope i get in here, i'm just slightly worried that bc it's so late even if i do get in, i'll be on the waiting list =/" Report Response
