What are your general comments?

"so my host took me to the admissions office. just down the hall is the conference room where we waited until 1115 for the tour guides. some people had already had their interviews, some, like me, had to wait until afternoon. everyone's interview seemed similar: basically 30 minutes of conversation, just getting to know you, asking you to expand on a couple of things in your application and clarifying any questions they might have. no ethics questions. one interview. tour: pretty cool, but my tour guide was very quiet, so i wish i had learned more. it all looks nice though came back for lunch. during lunch, several med students were around eager to answer any ?s about the school, applications, whatever. they were begging for ?s all very nice. after lunch, financial planning Q&A. some people had interviews that started during the Q&A so they left to go find the offices of the interviewers. some had ints after, so they stuck around. my interviewer picked me up from the room and walked me back to her office my flight was scheduled a couple hours after the interview ended, so i took the metrolink (it is really!!! easy) to get to/from SLU from STL: from STL airport to SLU school of medicine: walk outside the baggage claim area and follow the signs to the metrolink go onto the platform and buy a ticket ($1.25). wait on the side that says " to college " wait for next train. you'll go all the way to the end of the line, Grand Boulevard station. when you get there, go up (the elevator or the couple of flights of stairs). From there, Larkin Transportation provides a free shuttle between campuses. You want to board the shuttle heading south and exit at the Medical School (if that's where you're going) there are specific directions in the info SLU sends you, on the back of the directions page. it's probably taken me longer to type this than it actually takes to travel. when you're going back home, just do the reverse the whole interview was very conversational. she started out by saying that she had no intention of making me nervous. when we mentioned names of interviewers to the med students at the lunch, the med students all nodded and smiled and had positive comments to say about the interviewers.
