What are your general comments?

"We started wiht a financial aid presentation that was okay. The tour guide was excellent. We asked Felix anything and everything and it was clear that he cared about his school. He seemed to get along with everyone so it was clear the camraderie of which he spoke was genuine. I had my interview with the head of cardiology who interviewed me 1/2 an hour late and only for 10 minutes. He didn't discuss my file at all and gave me a 10 minute interview. We didn't discuss any of my post secondary experiences, and it was very impersonal. If the guy who went at 3 pm after me reads this, please email me at [email protected]'d love to hear what Dr. E had to say to you and how the Dean Koontz novel is going." Report Response
