What are your general comments?

"The day began very positively; financial aid presentation and orientation were very informative, followed by Dr. Eubanks "Welcome to the School; We are awesome" speech. Lunch with the third year students was great; they were extremely concerned that we were comfortable (the ham sandwiches were quite delicious). They showed us everything, including the covered walkways (very convient) and the skills lab and learning center. They emphasized teamwork among the students: the note taking service, sharing old notes, and study groups. Whatever you may have heard, it is NOT a competitive environment; it's actually very cooperative. I interviewed with Dr. McCluggage, Dr. Eubanks, and a physiologist. They were all very, very positive and encouraging; I was only nervous with McCluggage, as that was my first interview of the day. They all asked "Why Medicine?" and "Where do you see yourself in ten years?"" Report Response
