What are your general comments?

"I had a great interview experience!It was fun getting to know others that were going through it with me; the med students were so nice and enthusiastic about the school; Mrs. Hatcher's (secretary) the sweetest person in the world; Dr. Kennedy is really sweet and sincere; If you had an emotional experience that affected your grades/scores mention it, bc Dr. Kennedy is compassionate and appreciates hearing that kind of stuff. He actually told me that I wasn't going to get in this cut, but would get on the waiting list and would probably get in later in the year. Thursday after the committee met he called me, and I missed it since I was at work, so I got in touch with him the next day, and he said they were enthusiastic about my interview and application and wanted to offer me a spot!!! Best Christmas present ever! Really nice of him to call!" Report Response
