What are your general comments?

"It was a great day and I was one of the first to interview that day. I met some amazing people, ranging from students and faculty/staff to other interviewees. It was refreshing to see a school that really wanted diversity in its class and did its best to select a class of people committed to working in underserved communities. The interview was VERY, VERY RELAXED and seemed like a conversation with friends more than a formal interview for medical school. It was very low key and very inspirational and I would definitely attend DREW over any of the other schools I got into." Report Response
