What are your general comments?

"I arrived at 8:30 and had a 30-minute talk session, followed by student interview. I walked around the campus and then went to the Sacramento med school for my faculty interview and hospital tour. Both interviews had a list of questions to go from-- leadership (delegating or doing), an ethics question, motivation for medicine, impression of the school, and the like. They do send out acceptances even this late in the season, though you still have to wait 6-8 weeks (ie: mid June) to find out." Report Response
