What are your general comments?

"I was the morning session, so I had to get there between 7:45 and 8:00 am, first we had a talk by the admissions dean, then interviews started, my first wasn't until 9:30, so I had an hour to wait, my first interview was my one-on-one open file interview, mine was with a PhD, this is the person that presents your file to the admissions committee, then you wait an hour between interviews, my second interview was partially closed file (the can see your activities and personal statement, but no grades or MCAT), this interview was with a fourth year med student, and another PhD. After the interviews we had a speech on financial aid, then lunch, then the assistant dean of student affairs spoke, then we had a short tour, and that was the end. Both interviews are very relaxed and more conversation like than stressful interview. Be prepared to wait and to make small talk with the other interviewees. I was pleasantly surprised that I was not asked any questions about my grades or MCAT score." Report Response
