"That the Jesuit part of the school wasn't as HUGE as I thought... (or else I wouldn't have kept bringing it up)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"After arriving at the Embassy Suites at SFO (actually in Burlingame), I was set up with my interviwer in her hotel room. It was a little strange having an interview on a couch (in addition to being very sick with a cold). I had minimal contact with other interviewees, since we were scheduled at almost exact 30-minute intervals. The questions were mainly of the ''elaborate on parts of your application'' variety, including some information on my hometown, life before college, and explanation of some questionable grades and MCAT scores. Were it not for trying to get to know my interviwer before I left, I would not have thought I did too well! (Since this posting, I have been accepted to SLU.)" Report Response
