What are your general comments?

"In the morning when I arrived there was a good half an hour where all of the interviewees were able to talk and get to know eachother. The interviews were held downstairs. I was asked questions, but the interview was at times like a conversation. My interviewer spent quite a while telling me that medical school was like having your head in a vice. He talked about it for about twenty minutes. I thought it was a little strange, but somewhat understandable. After the interviews, some current students came to talk to us. They were great. They were really enthusiastic and seemed so happy to be at NYCOM. Later the Dean and a woman from finacial aid came to speak to us. They were both warm and seemed excited about us being there. We then went on a tour with the students and got to look around the facilities." Report Response
