What are your general comments?

"The people at UCD-SOM were friendly and chill; a lot of the students are older, which was appealing to me since I'm an older, non-traditional student; a lot of the students who spotted our interview group walking around campus approached us and offered to answer any questions, which I though was a good indication of how happy and supportive the students were; I had hoped that I would be interviewed by both a med student and faculty, but only got the faculty interview and that lasted about 3 hrs, forcing me to miss the tour of the medical center in Sac-town" Report Response
