What impressed you positively?

"The first year class-room was spacious and comfortable. The Jesuit morales that they teach along with medicine. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The interviewer basically said that all my volunteer, doctor shadowing, and health care sector work experiences didn't count in her mind. She said they weren't good enough. She wanted to know why else I wanted to be a doctor. Since I have many, many reasons and experiences, I was able to satisfy her. But, I didn't like that she shot down the main reasons and experiences. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"The location was crummy. If you walk on the street, you are asking to get mugged. If you park your car on the street, it is your fault if someone breaks in. This is according to the security guard at the front of the building." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Very negative. She said that my hospital volunteer work didn't count. That my doctor shadowing experiences were not long or extensive enough for me to have learned anything at all about medicine. That all my experiences that happened in high school don't count, even toward my motivation to wanting to become a doctor. She would cut me off and not even let me mention any of them. I had to go through my whole life to prove to her that I was worthy for her. " Report Response
