What are your general comments?

"The day was different from most schools I had interviewed with in that there was no scheduled informational meeting. As soon as I got to the admissions office, I was told to go to my interviewer's office and after the interview, we had a tour and lunch with first year students. During lunch, we got to talk to a fourth year student, who was really great. As he was already going through the Match, it kind of gave us a perspective on what we were all working towards. Also, he obviously really loved being at UCLA and it showed as he described his years both during the basic sciences and the clinical years. After lunch, the day was over, although some people had 2nd interview (I only had one). I left by 2pm." Report Response
