What are your general comments?

"There were 12 interviewees in a conference room beginning at 12:45. We chatted for a bit then listened to several brief presentations about the curriculum, financial aid, etc...There were numerous opportunities to ask questions and answers appeared frank and honest. The statistics were given: 200 interviews for 100 spots and usually around 150-160 acceptances were granted to fill the class. Those are awfully good odds IF you get an interview. The two closed file interviews were with community physicians and were comfortable and friendly. They both had grade/MCAT info so I don't know what was "closed" but it didn't really matter. There were no surprising questions and interviewers offered tips on how to impress the others- a nice gesture I thought. Our two 4th year tour guides had just matched at Cal-Davis (EM) and Baylor (IM-Cardiology) so it was clear the school has at least a good reputation nationally. " Report Response
