What are your general comments?

"The school and campus itself are top notch. The location makes it difficult to see myself there. The interviews were very laid back, almost too laid back. One of the interviewers seemed hardly interested in me, but he seemed to be that way with all of them. The tour was given by a volunteer, not a med student, which I found odd. He was very nice, but he could not answer all our questions. We were able to have lunch with a few med students and ask them questions. But this was at the beginning of the day, so we had more questions by the end of the day that we were not able to ask" Report Response
