What are your general comments?

"I've had 3 interviews now. This was the first time that the interviewer actually took time to read my AMCAS app before the interview. Definitely makes the interview a lot easier for me because the interviewer already knows my file and can ask specific, directed questions. Unfortuntately, the interview only lasted 20 minutes. Maybe my answers should have been longer or I should have asked more questions. Oh well, the admissions office said that the interviewer usually is not on the admissions committee. They just write an evaulation of the interview, so it just becomes part of the file that the AD Com reads. So I'm thinking that the interview doesn't carry as much weight in the admissions process as it does at other schools. " Report Response
