What are your general comments?

"Overall, the experience was great. They really pamper you by giving bus tours and delicious catered food. Plus, the med students sit and talk to you while you're waiting for your interview - this was a good thing for most interviewees but kinda distracting for me; since it was my first interview, I just wanted to sit quietly and think about what I was going to say. The interviewers grilled me about my grades for my first two years of undergrad, so be sure to explain each and every "C" or lower grade on your transcript." Report Response
