What was the most interesting question?

"Where are your MCAT scores? My interviewer did not have them written down in the file, but luckily I had my copy on hand. The office did have a copy of my MCAT score so it would probably have been no big deal in the end. It helped to keep the flow of the interview so I did not have to wait while my interviewer checked for them in another office or worse: could not find it. Someone at my UNCEOM interview laughed at me for carrying my MCAT score." Report Response
