What are your general comments?

"At first I was a little apprehensive about interviewing at Howard b/c of all the negative things I've heard, but I was thoroughly impressed with the school. I think they just got a new adminstrative secretary, Ms. Walk and she was incredibly nice unlike another secretary I had spoken to in the fall whose name I won't mention. There were 11 others in my interview group and I thought most of them were friendly and well qualified. I was suprised at how diverse the student body and interview group was: there were people from all different ethnic backgrounds, religions, life experiences, and ages. We spent most of the morning sitting around, filling out paperwork, and meeting MS1 & 2 students. After lunch there was a tour followed by the interviews. I got along with my interviewer from the get go b/c we do research in the same field. The interview was pretty short and my interviewer didn't really ask me much about my desire to study medicine, etc. " Report Response
