What are your general comments?

"Compared to a previous experience, this one was great. I interviewed with two faculty for 45 min each. My first interviewer was a very gentle biochemist who recalled parts of my personal statement and 2' and asked me questions about them. My second interviewer was a neurologist who gave me the feeling she thought I was a good candidate - this was very reassuring! She was great! Contrary to what I had heard, their emphasis is more on educating physicians to care for the whole person (mental, spiritual, physical) than trying to push Adventist doctrine on med students. It was a very warm and supportive environment. The Dean took the time to meet and have lunch with us and the lunch was GREAT!" Report Response
