"None of the interviewers knew anything of the faculty/curriculum so I couldn't really ask them any questions...Also one of them was wearing track pants and a T-shirt...not really professional.

"Overall it wasn't as hectic as I thought id'be. I had just had U of A's med school interview two days prior so I knew what to expect more or less. I was called in early for my interview surprisingly (2:40 vs 3:00). I felt depressed after my interview - maybe because I felt I could have done better, but you really don't know since you're adrenaline is high enough anyway." Report Response
