What are your general comments?

"pretty much awesome interview. totally laid back. the one doc gave feedback on my chances. the office was great in letting you know timelines for acceptances. the small class (72 students) and pbl seem to make for good learning experiences. from what i've read, you don't spend time learning asinine things that you'll never need again because of pbl. i'm glad i was accepted here!"
