What are your general comments?

"This was an interview for the UCBerkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program. The day started out with a short one-on-one briefing about the new curriculum (this was not an interview), then I met with a 5th-year student to interview. This was completely relaxed and conversational. I was then able to talk with 1st years in the computer room about the curriculum and then I went out to lunch with a 2nd year student. In the afternoon I had an interview with a faculty member which was also very comfortable and conversational. Lastly, I was able to sit in on a class before I left." Report Response
