What are your general comments?

"Day one: 2 MD interviews, 30 minutes each, one faculty and one student. Day two: 2 MD/PhD interviews, 30 minutes each, again one faculty and one student. The interviews were all low stress discussions, no real curve balls. There's so many things I liked about the interview. First, they put us up in a decent hotel, paid for airfare up to $300, paid for taxi service, took us out to a nice restaurant one night, etc... Beyond that, their cirriculum is totally cool. I like the idea of getting into the wards during second year. There is alot of misconceptions about the one year basic sciences program, but they've been put to rest in me. They have a real relaxed and down to earth attitude about alot of things, thanks to Sal, the coolest MSTP director on Earth (who is from South Philly, which probably explains it). There's alot of little things too. It's a good place to buy a house if you're into that sort of thing. Parking is not an issue like it is at so many other schools. You get $500/year from the program during the PhD phase to go to conferences. They have free drinks and candy for the students all the time. The lecture hall is sweet. Etc etc etc etc!"
