What are your general comments?

"The student tour guides were not as informative as I would have liked, most likely because they were all in ther first year. The other students we encountered while on the tour were not very friendly nor welcoming. I was very uncomfortable in the interview itself because the two doctors (One middle-aged woman and one elderly man) were throwing questions at me left and right; before I was finished answering one question, I had already been asked another. I was very turned off by the fact that the interviewers did not have my updated transcripts." Report Response
