What are your general comments?

"After an hour of orientation and summary of medical school, we were given a card with our interview times on them. Each student had 2-3 interviews scheduled at hour intervals. After your 2-3 closed-file interviews, you met with Dr. Kennedy (Asst. Dean of Admissions) for an open interview/review of your file that lasted from 2-10 minutes depending on the weaknesses in your file. After all applicants finished interviewing, 5 medical students gave us a tour of the facility. The tour guides were extremely nice and answered any questions we had. Overall, the interview process was laid-back and very enjoyable. Every student walked away smiling." Report Response
