What are your general comments?

"odd early morning, seemed kind of disorganized, unimpressed with the room in which we held the morning briefings, students directed me to my first interview, which was nice, had a bunch of downtime inbetween my first and second interviews, and had such great connections during my interviews that i missed the campus tour. I also didn't know that their avg MCAT score is highly comparable to that of UT Houston and UTMB... getting into the MD/MBA program will be the deciding factor for me here." Report Response
