What impressed you positively?

"I really thought Pomona was pretty. The facilities were nice and the classrooms were well designed. The systems-based curriculum was the best part for me personally. Since I've seen the most horrendous places, Pomona wasn't too terrible like most people say. And for those people who think it's really ghetto, they better understand that most hospitals are in the worst places. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Maybe it was just the day I interviewd, but some of the interviewees seemed stuffy and full of themselves. Example: I cured cancer, de-wormed all the children in a small village in Africa and had time to go get a Ph.D in nuclear biophysics at Oxford...really now...and then complain they were older students. The tour guide was nice, but I wouldn't hang out with him. Other than that, I had a good time. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I would have to wait for about two hours until it was my turn to interview. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Personally, I rocked the interview. But I've come with the conclusion that the interview doesn't matter as much at COMP. They are looking to increase their statistics and want people with amazing MCAT scores and tons of educational experience, from what I gather, beyond the B.S. or B.A. degree, especially if have some damage to your gpa during your undergrad.
