What are your general comments?

"I went to my interview with no preconceptions about the school, but fell in love with it. Syracuse seems like a great place and I think I would be very happy here if I get accepted. The people were all very nice, and the facilities were amazing. A couple of us went to the anatomy lab when we had some free time and the students were very informative. Two of them spent about 45 minutes talking to us about the school, and answering any questions we had. I even saw 2 girls that I went to undergraduate with who were 1st year students. Bottom line, Syracuse is a great place and I'd like to go there (Bonus: It's cheap if you're in state like me) :)" Report Response
