What are your general comments?

"I am a reapplicant and normally people who are rejected are able to get a rejection interview with Dr. Peden, I was not able to, because he was having surgery. Although that was a little discouraging, out of all of the medical schools that I interviewed at last year, I liked the Brody School of Medicine the best and I knew I didn't want to waste my time applying to a bunch of schools that I don't want to go to, so I applied early decision and I found out that I got accepted a month later! I never did find out why they didn't accept me last year, my application did not change that much, except I had graduated and was working and continued my volunteer experiences." Report Response
