What are your general comments?

"I liked the school itself. The facilities are all updated and have all the newest technology. The clinic downstairs didn't have any patients in it, which was strange, because our tour guide told us the students have plenty of people to work on, but when we went to the acual clinic, I saw very few patients in there. The interviewers were very nice people (both were faculty members), however, their interview skills were very poor. Both of them talked about themselves the whole time. One of them tried to talk me out of trying to specialize and I told him three of four times I had no intention of specializing, but he still kept going on and on why I don't have the grades to specialize and how no one will let me specialize based on my undergraduate grades. He was a nice guy but I just felt the interview missed the mark and that they didn't get to know me any better." Report Response
