What impressed you negatively?

"One of the med students who came by to talk to us said ''If you don't get in, don't worry, because medical school is totally boring and not fun.'' That was sad to hear! Also, one of my interviews was way under the 30 minute time slot and the interviewer kept cutting me off, as if he wanted to get it over with quickly." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was really excited about this program, but the interview experience was a little disappointing. I was offended to be put down because I couldn't afford to attend an expensive Ivy League. Most of the other students who applied were from wealthy families and attended schools full of like-minded students. I tried to spin my state university experience as intellectual diversity, but it may not have worked!" Report Response
