What are your general comments?

"This was an absolutely stress-free interview. I have no idea what I was worried about. When you walked into the building, you were given a name tag and a packet. The packet contained a schedule for the day, which group you were in, and a packet which you had to fill out additional information about yourself and write an impromptu essay. There were about 35-40 applicant for that day and we were divided into two groups. The first group went on interviews individually, filled out packets, and watched a video given by class members while the other group went on the tour. The interview consisted of two committee members who were really nice. The interviewers were very friendly and just wanted to find out more about you, since all they had in front of them was your packet and your recommendation letters. If you have issues (bad grades or bad PCAT scores) to discuss, now is the time to do it because these interviewers are basically your advocates when they talk about admitting you into the school. After about an hour and a half, the groups switched. The tour was really thorough. After everyone was finished, we ate lunch and listened to speeches about financial aid, student life, and the curriculum. I was very impressed with the fact that they told you about the admissions process, what to expect after the interview, and what the admissions committee was looking for in an applicant---I appreciated the honesty.
