What are your general comments?

"The process started at the crack of dawn; about 40 interviewees were herded together and then split into morning interviews and afternoon interviews. We watched presentations about the new curriculum, computers and IT, and financial aid. It was really great to see how many students showed up for the luncheon; they were excited to meet us and answered all of my questions. The tour was really thorough, showing us labs, classes, and the hospital (which is connected). I do, however, recommend finding the admissions office the day before (or going early) because the medical center is a little confusing and filled with one-way streets." Report Response
