What are your general comments?

"Very informal. They have constructed a new building where the Admissions Office is now housed; a great deal of time is spent in one room of that building simply talking to 4th year medical students. They do have a voice in the admission process, but it is not high stress by any means. Unfortunately, it does become tedious making small talk for almost two hours. Entirely too much time is spent in that one room. I was impressed by the doctors who I met, many of whom were teachers. However, I was not particularly impressed by the campus or facilities. A small recreation center, a poor dorm hall, etc." Report Response
