What are your general comments?

"Overall it was a good experience. The medical students were really excited about the school and often just came in during the interview day to ask how we were doing and to let us ask any questions. The interview was really low-key, probably because with the group setting, the spotlight wasn't always on me and I got a chance to interact with and get to know the other interviewees better. Plus staying with a student is always a great way to see how the students really feel about the school away from faculty and administrators." Report Response
