What are your general comments?

"I thought the process was really long but appropriate. I had a really hard interviewer, beware of the WANG (that's the guy's last name)! He asks you super hard questions and makes you list your courses that youre taking right now and then asks you questions about concepts in courses that youre taking. Also he asked about how I did in HIGH SCHOOL (how is this relevant??), the breakdown of my PCAT scores (which I had forgotten, and they should have on file anyway..), and another girl I talked to got asked to draw out the circulatory system of the HEART so..be prepared if you get him as your interviewer. The process was very very long, so get a good night's sleep if you can." Report Response
