What are your general comments?

"The interview just asked about various aspects which I had highlighted in my AMCAS and secondary applications. It was very conversational which made it very low stress. There weren't any real questions, just more of can you tell me about this experience.... I really enjoyed the interviewer. The students like being in their school. It did get a little tiring to hear how everyone is so happy...it's great that people like it there, but all seems too good to be true. Beyond that, the neighborhood isn't the greatest, but if you've lived in a city you won't be shocked. Plus, it provides for a lot of exposure to different cases. Overall, I would say if you've read this site you'll be fine. Just expect some happy students that may be a bit proud of their school and enjoy the day!" Report Response
