What are your general comments?

"Well, if you have an interview before Dec 1, congrats you are in. APPLY EARLY if this school is your first choice. They like high DAT scores, espec PAT, much more than GPA. This is a great school, dont get me wrong, if you want to be a GP and you are maybe older and want to get out and get your hands dirty ASAP. If you want a more academic education with more opportunity at the end, go somewhere else. You will be happy here, just make sure you know what kind of education you want. Also, eveyone said that the interviews were chill and just conversation, but mine was the most stressful interview I went to (out of 6). My chick was a UCSF graduate, didnt seem into UOP at all, was very unenthusiastic, grilled me with hard questions and had no facial expression and comments of her own while I was answering. Also she did not seem knowledgeable about the school at all. She kept asking if I had questions and then not knowing answers. Make sure to impress Dr. Y with a few good questions, because if he likes you you are in. " Report Response
