What are your general comments?

"the day started off with breakfast and a chat with a med student. then we sat in the freshmen auditorium and listened to three speakers about the benefits of southwestern. the tour through Parkland was amazing. a county hospital is a really good training ground for med students. the two interviews were very laid back and conversational--no tough ethical or what would you do in this situation questions. after the interviews, we had a bbq lunch. then we listened to another speech about financial aid (which made me wonder- could i afford $25000 a year??). the day finished with a tour with their new Student activities building... a lot of showing off on their part, a lot of ooo-ing and aww-ing on ours..."
