What are your general comments?

"the day started at 10:30 with an orientation by ed dagang. i've heard him speak many times before on campus so i wasn't suprised by his slightly condescending way of talking. there were only 6 of us interviewing and i was the only one that had gone to davis for undergrad. the med students didn't show up to have lunch with us or give us the tour, which is not a big deal because the davis med school campus is all of 3 buildings, really. i had one interview at 1 with a doctor on campus. he had a list of questions to ask, mostly standard questions, a couple of the scenarios (two patients in the ICU, if your're a doctor on a plane and someone has a heart attack). but mostly a really relaxed interview. my second interview wasn't until 5 at UCDMC (lucky for me i still live in davis so i went home in between). expect that you'll have a lot of down time during the day and DON'T book your flight before 8 if you're flying in. the student interview was very casual, she was very nice and only asked a few standard questions and then we just chatted for a while. overall a really good interview day."
