What are your general comments?

"I had one weird interview. Barely ten minutes into the interview my interviewer says, "You'll have no problem getting in. You're in." That took me by total suprise and I wasn't quite sure what to do, being as it had only been ten minutes. So I asked questions... The other interviewer was also very nice and it would have gone on forever except my interviews ran back to back and I had to haul ass to get to the second one on time. I didn't do it, but perhaps if you get the chance...apply for MD/MBA for at least these two advantages alone: extra interview to enhance your application and you find out about acceptance before the match. Also, my general impression was that students there (though not all) didn't rank Tech high but rather just "ended up" there. " Report Response
