What are your general comments?

"The day began at 11:30 so I was able to sleep in. I had found the building the day before so I knew exactly where to go so I wouldn't be nervous. There were 8 other applicants and we began with a short information session followed by a fourth year medical student who spoke about her experiences at Vanderbilt. A tour and question session were given by two first-year students followed by lunch in the hospital cafe. I had about a half hour after lunch to relax and prepare for my interview. The interviewer was very friendly and I felt comfortable talking to him. He did not ask any questions I was not prepared to answer. The day went by quickly and I felt good about the school in the end." Report Response
