What are your general comments?

"The day started at 8:00 a.m. (this is the time that it also starts for medical students). The students and faculty at the school are very happy (happier than at any of the other six schools I interviewed at). The students would walk up to us and would talk to us about their experience here. There are only 100 students per class. The faculty are also friendly. I had never visited the school before, but it is beautiful. The equipment is very high tech. The Problem Based Learning labs were very cool, they have the small group learning and a patient exam area all in the same room. The community is very nice and very inexpensive, you can buy a decent house for $80K, or you can rent one for a low amount. There were 10 of us interviewing that day. The interview started with the Dean meeting with us to give us an introduction to the university, then a financial aid person met with us. Both interviewers were friendly and wanted to learn more about me as an individual. The interviews were pretty laid back and non-stressful. " Report Response
