What are your general comments?

"I went into this interview with a really bad impression of Howard-unfortunately, there are a lot of negative stereotypes out there about this school. For me, though, this completely changed once I stepped foot on campus. The history which this college of medicine holds is amazing. The students were extremely friendly; they spent time answering questions and filling any down time we had by talking with us. The day flowed very smoothly and I had a really good interview experience. Howard has a long standing committment of providing care to underserved communities and if this philosophy matches yours, I can think of no better place to learn and practice medicine."
