What are your general comments?

"The interviews were actually semi-open file; the interviewer knows everything about you except your GPA and MCAT score. There are two interviews and in my case both were very nice and polite. It was more like a very low key conversation; they mainly wanted to know how much of a person you are and if you know what are you getting into. I heard of one interviewer asking tons of moral and ethical questions, be ready. Excellent school, and will take me where i need to go." Report Response
