What are your general comments?

"Day begins at 12:45 with a welcome session and fin. aid info. Then, a brief presentation of clinical and basic sciences are given by faculty. After that, you have two closed file interviews (i had one 4th year student, one faculty; they had my personal statement in front of them)and an exit interview with either Dr. Kennedy or Dr. Arnold. A tour rounds out the day with some med students. Pretty low stress day overall; just make sure you review your AMCAS, especially your PS. I was asked several questions about specific decisions I made." Report Response
