What are your general comments?

"This interview is extremely low stress. Any preparation I did was not necessary as the interview consisted of nothing but a conversation with a doctor who really did not feel the need to ask any difficult questions. Also, be prepared to sit around a lot, because there was about a 2 hour wait between my interview and the tour plus financial aide session. The most impressive thing about the school was undoubtedly the match list. It seems that students here can get residencies wherever they would like." Report Response
