What are your general comments?

"Going into my first interview I was very nervous but I was glad to have it at Vanderbilt. The staff in the admissions office was very nice and answered all my questions. You even get walked to your interview. The poor lady who took me to my interview took me into the underground tunnels under the hospital to get to my interview. We then found out that it was the wrong way and had to walk all the way back and then go above ground to my interview that was three blocks away. I felt so bad for her. The interview itself was very chill and that was nice. I wasn't asked any ethical or medical related questions. I was just asked about stuff that came off of my AMCAS (that is all the interviewer read) and we got into a conversation right after that. Definately a good experience and now one of my top choices after seeing how satisfied everyone was with the school." Report Response
