What are your general comments?

"It was a good experience. I got there about 10:30am, chatted with some other interviewees (about 11 in all), some of whom had already had their interview. Then we went on a tour given by a 4th year. He loved the school and the tour ended up lasting about 20 minutes longer than planned, so they had to shorten lunch and cancel the financial aid session. The facilities seemed nice. We had a nice catered lunch in a conference room with some medical students. They talked to us a while. Then I had to go to my interview. My interviewer was nice and it was really conversational. Then I filled out an evaluation and left. I was there from 10:30-2:30, so it wasn't too long, nor too short." Report Response
