What are your general comments?

"The interview day is well put together. My interviews were spaced with an hour in between, which gave me time to work on the paperwork they had for me. The interviews were open file, but the physicians did not have access to my GPA or MCAT score. They both seemed to truly be trying to get to know me. The dean comes out to say a few words, meet all of the applicants there that day, and explain the remaining aspects of the admissions process. Then it was off to lunch with a few medical students who then take you on a tour. The students are extremely happy to be at Stritch and eager to answer any and all questions. The tour is very thorough, including stops in the anatomy lab, lecture hall, hospital, study rooms, and gym. Overall it was an amazing experience. Everyone is really friendly and it was a low-stress day." Report Response
