"nothing really" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"nothing much really, I read all the comments on this web page, so I pretty much knew what was going to happen. If I hadn't, it would've been good to know about sitting in the room with fourth years who were evaluating us, although there wasn't any when I was there since they were all on break. When they were there though (for all of five minutes), it was no stress at all. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"It was a very enjoyable experience, especially considering this was both my first interview and first choice, so i was a bit nervous. The dean was really nice and funny and he had a very welcoming talk. Everyone was really nice. My interview was no stress at all, and it was more like a conversation. The interview with the med student was really hurried, but that was again because people were on break so they had fewer staff around. " Report Response
