What are your general comments?

"The interview day consisted of a one-on-one session with Dr. Kirby (he interviews most applicants), was followed by a financial aid session, tour, then lunch. Chances to sit in on classes are abundant. Tour guides are just regular ol' students and are taught to show the 5 "Ls": lounge, library, labs, lecure hall, then lunch. If you want to see more, you need to ask. Also, when you interview at any med school take into account the proximity to exams during your visit. You can expect students to be more reserved, some places more vacant the day before a test and them to be more uppity and excited right after. (Don't go the day before a test, not ask about tests, and just assume the "students are all cold pricks.")" Report Response
