What are your general comments?

"Arrived about 15 minutes prior to my interview. First thing was the jacket fitting and I debated whether to put my nickname on it, but then decided against it. My interview picked me up and took me into the clinic. Firstly, he told me the cons of UDM which I admired since no school that I have visited previously would tell me why I shouldn't go there. Anyway, the interview was in the clinic and mostly I observed my interviewer tending to students and their patients. The actual interview was maybe only 5 minutes as I never really fully answered any questions that were asked since we were in such a bind for time. Then had lunch which my interviewer paid for and ate with the seniors. After lunch came back to the clinic to finish my interview. Then went home. Good times all around!" Report Response
