What are your general comments?

"San Antonio was so great!! There are so many reasons why I would like to attend there! Dr. Jones, the Dean of Admissions, spoke to us in the morning on how we were chosen for interviews based on our responsibilities, work and research experience, ec's, etc and not on numbers. They really emphasized that they want people who will make great doctors and not just great 1st and 2nd year med students. As a result, the interviewers have your secondary and your personal statement and that is all. That way no pre-conceived notions are made about you by the interviewer based on your grades and GPA."
