What are your general comments?

"Well, was congratulated about how I managed to get an interview at UConn. They plan to interview at most 160-180 applicants for 45 seats and will send 90 offers of admission for the coming cycle. Dr. T told us that we were some of the top applicants the country has to offer and should have no problem getting into a school as it is a matter of WHERE we will attend and not IF we can get in anywhere. The interview at UConn acts to determine whether a candidate is a good fit for their program as if there were reasons to reject us, we would not be there interviewing. Oh yeah, extremely demanding curriculum and love of human biology is necessary for success at UConn. The interview itself was pretty laid back and we got over the issues with my app immediately. Although at times the interviewers bickered with each other following my responses. So no matter what, one of the interviewers would support my statements which I found reassuring. Was told I might've gotten into the medical program when my GPA was mentioned." Report Response
