What are your general comments?

"It was a great experience! I fell in love with the community, the school, the atmosphere. I felt like the students are happy, and the educative system lends to a non-cut-throat environment. I inverviewed with Dr Leure-duPree, who is the Dean of Student Affairs, and he grilled me with tough questions, but I was only able to say a few words before he interupted me and told me what he thinks--so that was easy. Then I inverviewed with Dr. Guhad, who is not even a faculty member of the Med School, but he was great. He shared some really neat experiences, and basically praised me the whole time."
