What are your general comments?

"For all of you who want to interview on another day besides friday don't. According to the students they have fun on fridays. Don't be nervous because there are three interviews scheduled, just think there are three opportunities to demonstrate how good you really are, so if you screw up on the first interview there are two more in which you can make it up. The staff are quite helpful, so be really super nice to them. Overall I would say that the school was quite impressive, leaving the hospital I thought gees its almost as if the difficult question for me is why shouldn't I go to this school its an awesome place. The fascilities and anything else you want are there for medical students and that is a fact. So a comfortable life you can expect at Ann Arbor if you dare take the challenge. For all of you who are nervous get over it, for all of you who are relaxed then you have it made, hey you are there for a reason so enjoy." Report Response
