What are your general comments?

"I felt iffy about the whole interview visit. The people were nice, but the interview day seemed a bit unorganized. Nashville seemed like a nice place and it is an inexpensive city to live in. We had a chance to sit in on a lecture and all of the students were talking, passing notes, eating, playing games on their laptops, and all in all not engaged in what was being said. They were all just there because attendance gets taken during lecture (something that I've never heard of at a med school). Come with quesitons about the school b/c they all give you a lot of time to ask about the school" Report Response
