What are your general comments?

"This was my first interview so I was extremely nervous. This is probably the best interview I WILL EVER HAVE! Why? they really go out of their way to calm you down. My interview didn't last more than 5 minutes. There were 4 other people in my group..their interview lasted for half an hour each. I was the last one to be interviewed. As soon as I walked in, they told me I was an impressive candidate and asked whether I had any questions or not. I didn't get any questions from them. I asked them for a recommendation of a good anatomy book to look over to prep me for gross anatomy, and the interviewer (neuroscience prof)made me follow him to his office and gave me 3 books for free..as a gift!!!! This only happens in movies...It was very surreal. I felt like they really wanted me there. Financial aid lady is hilarious. well good luck to everyone and if you have any other question..feel free to PM me: Madhoshi. " Report Response
