What are your general comments?

"Started off by meeting the two other interviewees that day and a quick orientation by super friendly Jane and other office staff. Then sat in on classes. Then a first interview with one science faculty and one staff -- about a 50 minute interview. Very friendly and conversational. Sitting comfortable chairs -- none of this behind a desk or conference table stuff. Then a tour of the Mayo clinic. Then lunch with students. Then a talk with the dean of students -- very informal. Then another interview with a resident -- again very conversational and pleasant. Then a tour by students. A long day but very pleasant and lots to learn and see. Incredible library, incredible study room, incredible clinic..." Report Response
