What are your general comments?

"Overall, a very enjoyable experience. The writing sample was quite simple. We were given 20 minutes to answer the following: Think of a decision you made in the past year and how it impacted you. My first interview was a group one with 1 faculty member, 2 currents students, and 5 applicants. It was very relaxed and we simply went around the table answering questions. The second interview was with 2 students. It was my least fav b/c there was little conversation. They simply fired questions and I answered them. Then I went on a tour of the campus. I was surprised to see how many professional schools are on the campus. Lastly, I had my interview with a faculty member. We had a great conversation and he conveyed to me how passionate many of the faculty are with regards to teaching. I left the school with a great feeling about the whole day and confident that MD would be a good choice. Definitely eat a good breakfast and bring some water along since no food or beverages except coffee are provided." Report Response
